Phlox Drummondi


Hope you are keeping safe. Oh dear another disaster. I planted in a pot my phlox drummondi seedlings.  Placed them under the veranda. Watered them well when I first put them in and now they are all drooping and looking worse for wear.   Please advise

    If you haven’t watered them since I guess they may just need a good soak And maybe more light (depending what under the verandah means).  Give them a thorough watering and if you can put the pot on a dish or into a bucket first. That way the water that runs through will be caught and you can leave the pot to soak up some more water overnight.
