We redid a plant bed with soil from a supplier, and the beans sprouted and looked fine temporarily, and then after a couple of weeks turned yellow. The "compost" that we purchased smelled very much of pine wood, so it may be that the compost was very acid, and now the nutrients are not available. Is there a way to fix this? Can I add lime, slow release nutrients or soil amendments? I don't want to redo the bed and kill the poor beans.
