I live in Wisconsin and I'm very new to the entire idea of gardening! My boyfriend's mother planted the pit, and waited until it began to shoot and grow leaves before turning the care over to me. The problem is that, even though I'm following the instructions she gave me, it seems to be dying: the leaves are droopy and look to be drying out on the ends. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong, and I've only had it for a few days! I'm too embarrassed to go back to the boyfriend's mother and tell her that I'm already having trouble, so I was hoping that I could avoid that and find help here. Anything you can advise would be helpful, I'm sure, and greatly appreciated!
