bought a lovely salvia  around 6 weeks ago,was naughty and waited 3 weeks to plant it, then went away, came home and it's all brown and not looking well, been watering it, will it survive?

    Is there any green left at all?

    I have an astrantia that wasn't doing very well in my garden,it hadn't grown and the leaves were a bit brown and straggly. So I have dug it up and put it in a pot to give it some tlc. It is away from slugs and in plain sight so I can water it and so forth. Try this method but don't get rid as some plants will come back next year.

    It's worth trying cotty's suggestion.

    I wouldn't feed it if it's poorly - give it the chance to recover first.  Not too much water either - salvias don't like soggy bottoms.  image

    ok dove thanks, it has plenty of air and light, i'll just keep an eye, disappointed as it's planted near svepter'd isle and the combination would've been lovely, it went brown as rose flowered
