Plants that turn red

Zone Regina saskatchewan | [email protected] added on September 16, 2016 | Answered

I have bought several plants that turn red in the fall and they don't turn. They just brown and die out - even the creeping ivy I took from an existing plant that turns red doesn't turn red in my yard. Is there something I can add to the soil that can help it along? 😟

If your plants are turning brown and dying off, you may want to check the growing conditions that each particular plant needs and if your garden is meeting these requirements.
Check soil, sunlight and watering.
A soil test will help you determine if the nutrients in your soil are adequate or if you need to amend the soil.
Your nearest County Extension Office can help you with a soil test for a small fee.
I've included a link to help you find the nearest office.
