Flower Box Dirt Killing Petunias


peggylm98 added on June 12, 2017 | Answered

Why are my petunias dying just one week after planting? I put out Corkeys snail bait and gave a dose of miracle grow after planting. I noticed some white fuzzy dirt clods, like mold? Around the dying plants. Any ideas as to the reason for the destruction?

Make sure the soil and container are well draining.
Soil should be moist, but never soggy. The mold may indicate excess moisture levels.
