Nutrient Deficiency Or Pest

//Nutrient Deficiency Or Pest

This looks like it could be either insect damage, disease damage, or nutrient deficiency. We recommend you use a magnifying lens to look for very small insects, or signs of their presence, (like black tar spots of excrement within the spots) on the reverse side of the yellow spots, or other signs of a fungal disease (like mildew signs). If there is nothing visible, then this could be a different kind of fungal or a bacterial disease, or signs of a nutrient deficiency. In this case we recommend you take a sample (sealed in a bag) to your local garden center for proper ID and control recommendations. Be careful with splashing water on the leaves and do not water over the top of the plants to avoid spreading fungal and bacterial diseases.
