sea water damage

Zone 8 | pattyapi added on September 15, 2012 | Answered

Please help me! My plants are dying from Hurricane Isaac flooding. Recently my home and garden were flooded with 4. 5 ft of storm surge sea water. All the plants that were exposed are stressed and or dying. Is there anything I can do beside pour more water on them to dilute the salt? My greatest heart break was the loss of my beautiful garden and flowers.

Unfortunately, you are doing all you can right now. Just keep them watered to dilute the salt and hopefully this will reduce the damage. However, be careful not to overwater the plants as this can be just as detrimental.
