dying plants - Knowledgebase Question

Woodbridge, Vi
Question by d_dogbe

I planted tickseed, speedwell, blue salvia, yarrow and garden phlox. I use all purpose miracle growth but they start dying just about a week after the transplant. I went for a second face and I am having the same problem, what should I do. Thanks.

Planting in mid-summer is really stressful to plants. Early spring or late fall are the best times to plant. If you must plant in mid-summer, be sure to keep your new plants well watered and try to provide some shelter from hot afternoon sun for the first couple of weeks after planting. This should get them off to a good start. Good luck with your new plants!
