Q.problem with leaves withering & drying up when hardening off plants

Zone Villa Grove IL 61956 | Anonymous added on April 6, 2020 | Answered

I’ve been growing my own plants for over 30 yrs and in the last 3 or 4 yrs have had problems with my leaves drying up when hardening off my plants. I lose 3 or 4 leaves before I get them hardened off which doesn’t leave much left to plant.

Have you tried shortening the amount of time you leave them outside in the beginning? Do you bring them in at night the first few days? Try changing your routine a bit and see if that helps.
