The Q&A Archives: Mexican Elder

Question: How much water does it need to grow. I seem to water the tree for ever and it still looks like it is dying or barely hanging in there. I love the way it look when it is full of leaves and flowers yet summer kicks in and I don't know what I am doing wrong. Please Help

Answer: Lydia,

I think the problem is soil moisture, but I am not sure how to advise you since I can't be there to check out the soil. Dig down a few inches around the plant and see if the soil is moist or not. It may be too much water or not enough that is causing your plant problems. If you can get the soil moisture right the plant should start growing and blooming right too.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
