How often and long should I water petunias? What is making the lower leaves yellow and plant shrivels?

Water as needed to maintain moderate soil moisture, not soggy wet. The yellowing of lower leaves may be due to soggy soil, dry soil or lack of nitrogen. Fertilize with a soluble plant food such as Miracle Gro and see if this helps.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
