My Zucchinis sprouted about 10 days ago. They have grown new leaves and the whole plant is yellow. Zucchinis are planted in heavily composted ground. Anyone with suggestions to get them to green up? TIA. Cheers Pete

If the compost is not completely broken down to compost/humas it will take the nitrogen first and the plant will not receive much. It could take 1-3 months for the compost/nitrogen to become available for the plants. Could try watering in some fertiliser around the plants although too much and you end up with big plants.
