Q. Rain daisy

Do these plants come back every year? They look very dead, and I’m not sure if I should have cut them down before winter.

Rain daisy (botanical name Dimorphotheca) is an annual, so the plants won't come back every year (the winter kills them). You can cut them down to improve your garden's appearance, but it's not required.

The soil may be depleted of nutrients. If you have not, try fertilizing the plants with a fertilizer for flowering plants, such as miracle grow or Osmocote. This article may help

Q. Zephyranthes root pruning.

Hi.

I live at India where the temperature hovers around 30-40C almost everyday! Recently I had bought a pink Zephyranthes from a nursery. I wanted to transplant them to the pots. But they have developed very long roots that it\’s difficult to plant them in a bowl like container. I fear that they would die because of very less space for their roots to grow.

Is it advisable to prune the roots?? I don\’t have any big sized pot right now.

Thanks in advance.
