I compost all garden waste and spread it on the beds in autumn but notice I have a lot of plants with a mineral deficiency,they are pale between the veins what should I add to correct this defiency



Hi Lizbeth. I bet you thought you had been ignored. Scatter the ground with some bone-meal (or even blood, fish and bone) and then lightly hoe it in. That should fettle them for next season. Suggest you do it in spring now.
