The Q&A Archives: Too much rain

Question: We have been having too much rain lately for our area ( Southeastern Idaho) We also have cooler than usual temps. My husband and I noticed the leaves on some of our plants and trees are turning yellow, however our iris seem to be loving all this extra moisture and cooler days. What can we do for the other poor plants?

Answer: The plants do sound stressed. Yellowing leaves are an indication of overly wet soils. But, you can't control the rain so your plants will just have to deal with the excessive moisture. Things will dry out and the plants will recover. There's really nothing you can do to help them along. Just hope for sunshine so the soil will dry out! Best wishes with your landscape!
