Since the passing of my father, my parents garden has been needing someone to tend to it. The plants have all suffered. This year I decided to help it thrive. My problem (one of them) is the bleeding heart. It has extremely dry and clumpy dirt. The leaves are dying and it only has on flower. I'm not sure what to do. Should I water it more often? Replace the dirt completely? Should I not bother the plant since it is spring now? Does that even matter? Any advice is welcome!

I live in Washington DC (zone 7b)

Welcome to the site!

Bleeding hearts are pretty bullet proof, are they planted in the ground?

No. Sorry, I should have mentioned that. They are in a big pot.
