Answer: Henry,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

It is difficult to say if your plants can be saved or not without knowing what is wrong with them. I suggest you contact your County Extension Office to see if they can assist with diagnosing the plants from samples or from a photo. Their contact info is:

Telephone: (239) 461-7500
Fax: (239) 461-7501

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
