potted petunias are very beautiful

My petunias were beautiful. I water them daily and deadhead them, and even cut them back but now the heat is on and they're looking bad. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. The leaves are dying at the base and they're wilty looking. Can you give me some advice?

Here in Florida, petunias are only a spring flower, because they can't take the heat. If you've had a lot of heat there, this could be your problem. Also you could be watering too much, if the soil is not extremely well drained (read no "moisture retentive" products in it.) Here's an article on petunia problems for your consideration: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/petunia/problems-with-petunias.htm
