The Q&A Archives: Bad looking plants

Question: Brought six Pink ,N Pretty Hydrangea but they are a little green & doing nothing.

Answer: Staton,

Make sure they were planted at the same depth they were growing previously, not too deep or too shallow. Check soil moisture around roots for too dry or worse, too soggy wet. Dig down a few inches to feel soil and you can tell if its soggy or dry.

Fertilize with a soluble product such as Miracle Grow or Peter's Plant Food at the label rate. They should perk up with good care and a little time, if the soil moisture is kept right.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
