When to re-water?
Hello all. I have a Centaurea plant that had been doing fairly well until its leaves started turning yellow and it was generally looking limp and sorry for itself...I've found out that my husband has been giving it too much water (he thought he was doing the right thing?!).
My local garden centre kindly informed me to put it in a batch of new compost and not to water it in as it's already wet to a degree (which it was) and to let it dry out somewhat. This may sound a silly question but how long roughly should I now wait until re-watering? Also what it the best way of removing the withered leaves? Is it ok to snip with a pair of secateurs (peeling them off feels horrible but if that's the best way then of course I'll do that). Sorry for all the silly questions (I'm a novice gardener) and thanks in advance.
