I read somewhere on t'interweb that yellowing leaves was a sign of nitrogen deficiency, so I gave mine a splash last week and it certainly seems to have perked them up :D

Any suggestions where to obtain said Nitrogen?!

Have a read of this article on the information pages of the site

It states that nitrogen can be found in sulphate of ammonia, prilled urea, nitro chalk or nitrate of soda.  You should easily be able to pick up one of these at your local lotty shed, garden centre etc etc
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

I'm sorry but I don't, I just use the stuff that we get in for the dahlias ( we have a bunch of various vitax feeds ) but you have to be a registered nursery to buy from our suppliers. Take a wander round wilkinsons though, they have a fair range of feeds ( NPK of the stuff I used was 301 )

Thanks for the advice, I'll have have a look for something suitable when I'm in Wilkos next.

i just gave mine a sprinkle of blood fish and bone, gently tickled into the soil. the nitrogen in it is quickly available and it perked them up in a couple of days :)
