If the epsom helped, it is a nutrient uptake issue. Try a bit of nitrogenish stuff

My basil leaves were yellowing until I planted them, and then they perked right up. My peppers were stunted, probably due to exposure to some cold temperatures, but they're happy to be in the ground now and are growing noticeably. I have no idea if any of that relates to your problem, though.
