Magnesium deficiency

Broad red marginal bands, later fading to cream.

 
Gooseberry Leaves - Potassium deficiency 305. Gooseberry Leaves

Potassium deficiency

Bluish green color, margins generally curled backward; develop purple tints followed by grayish brown marginal scorch; purpling disappears as scorching develops.

 
Raspberry Leaf - Potassium deficiency 306. Raspberry Leaf

Potassium deficiency

Marginal leaf scorch and intervenal browning; leaves tend to curl backward towards under surfaces, but scorched margins turn forward.
