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!

Welcome to the site!

Bleeding hearts are pretty bullet proof, are they planted in the ground?
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

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