The Q&A Archives: Foxglove Camelot Rose

Question: Leaves are turning brown on my foxglove camelot rose and the soil dries out quickly. I watered it Saturday and it is dry today. Instructions say to water weekly. What could be the problem?

Answer: It sounds as though your soil is not holding enough water to keep your foxglove happy. Water more often - twice a week should do it. Wait a day or two after watering and stick your finger down into the soil. If the soil is damp an inch below the surface you won't have to water for another day or two. If it is dry, it's time to water again. Eventually you'll figure out how often to water your foxglove to both conserve water and to keep the plant healthy. Enjoy your garden!
