The Q&A Archives: my petunias

Question: My petunias seems lifeliess and the leaves are truning brown? are they dying out as we approach fall or is something wrong?

Answer: It is the end of the season for petunias. They thrive in hot sunshine and begin to decline when the weather cools, especially if nighttime temperatures begin to get cold. I don't think you can revive your plants so why not pull them out and replace them with a cool season annual? Pansies, snapdragons, primroses and ornamental cabbage are all nice choices for fall color. Enjoy your garden.
