Could you please tell me why my potted asparagus ferns are developing brown and wilted leaves?
I purchased and potted them approx. 2 weeks ago. They are located in a covered area on the entrance to my house.

Those symptoms are usually due to dry soil or soggy wet (poorly drained) soil. It can also be due to overfertilizing which can burn plants. Watch the soil moisture and try to keep it moderately moist. A little fertilizing with a dilute solution of Miracle Gro or Peters at the low constant feed rate can help encourage vigor so it will put on new healthy growth faster.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
