I planted petunias yesterday and today they look like they are dying. I have them in full sun. I also put them in good top soil and put some fertilizer on them to hellp them take root. Do you have an answer?
Thank you.

I think your petunias are going through a little transplant shock. They should perk up on their own in a few days. If you can temporarily shade them from the hot afternoon sun for a few days it will help them adjust to their new homes. Just set something in front of them to block the afternoon sunshine. Once their roots become established they will grow and perform beautifully for you. Best wishes with your new plants.
