What am I doing wrong? - Knowledgebase Question

Question by vazquezl2

I planted 4, 1-gal. blue plumbagos 8 weeks ago under a young oak tree and they are not doing to well. I live in zone 9 area, so I have a sandy mix soil. I see older plumbagos like mine growing/blooming everywhere. How do I get mine to this level. Due to the rains in the area lately I know it is not lack of rain and due to the sandy soil I know filtration is not a problem. I fed them Miracle Grow once already, what's wrong with my plumbago's? Thanks

Lourdes,

Those plants can be slow to get started. Keep them well watered but not soggy wet. Fertilize with Miracle Gro every week or two for a couple of months to give them a good boost. They will settle in and be fine.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
