The Q&A Archives: Dieing plants

Question: Why are my newly planted plants dieing even though i water the way i should?

Answer: If you recently planted, I suspect they are going through a little transplant stress. Water as usual and they should perk up in a week or so. If you can provide some afternoon shade from the hot sun, that will help, too. I just drive a couple of stakes in the ground and attach burlap or sunscreen fabric so it is angled to provide shade from noon until late afternoon. In a week or so your plants should perk up and you can remove the sunscreen. Good luck with your plants!
