BLACK EYED SUSAN VINE IN A POT

Zone CHARENTE FRANCE | Anonymous added on July 17, 2018 | Answered

I HAVE RECENTLY BOUGHT A BLACK EYED SUSAN VINE WHICH WE HAVE PLACE IN A LARGE POT IN THE REQUIRED POSITION REGARDING SUN AND SHADE. I THINK I HAVE BEEN OVER WATERING, EVEN THOUGH THE SOIL SEEMS DRY. THE LEAVES ARE GOING PALE YELLOW AND DROPPING OFF VERY EASILY. I HAVE READ THE OTHER INFO ON LINE BUT NOTHING MENTIONS THIS PROBLEM. IT IS GROWING RAPIDLY AND I HAVE FED IT WITH SOME MIRACLE GROW LIQUID. I AM NOT A GOOD GARDENER, BUT THIS SEEMED IDEAL TO US FOR THIS POSITION ON THE TERRACE. WE HAVE FIXED TRELLIS TO THE WALL TO SUPPORT IT. MANY THANKS FOR ANY ADVICE YOU CAN OFFER. mRS. lESLEY dENNIS

If you soil is always dry, even though you are watering, it may be to light to hold moisture and nutrients for the vine.
Always use a good quality potting soil for container planting.

Daily water or even twice a day in hot spells is generally needed.
