I bought two Sweet Annie plants last year and had a great harvest in late summer. I followed the instructions about cutting and left a few branches on the plant to help it come back to life in the spring. It is now May and I have a feeling my plants are DEAD. Neither plant shows any signs of growth. I was just wondering when they are suppose to start new growth? Is May too soon or can I assume they are DOA?

The new growth should appear in spring, though it's been a little cool in many areas of the country this spring, so this could be causing the plants to take a bit longer. I would give it another couple weeks or so before giving up on them.
