I'm concerned about watering my plants- possible issues that could be causing me to have a brown thumb aside from the impossibility of it just being ME. Does anyone know if we have a history of having 'hard' water here in South walton? Or if we have high Ca or Mg levels? I have ordered an analysis from regional utilities, but couldn't wait to get a general consensus from local green thumb so-wallers! I also am perplexed at the metallic 'sheen' my pond water is sprinkling on all my plants through my pond water. Do you know what causes this? I sure don't. I've lived here for 8 years and never had a problem until last year! I want GREEN plants, not bronze!! Help? Thanks for your input!
