Zone 9? | mslizfranke added on July 3, 2012 | Answered

I have a fairly new plant (just this spring) approx. 3 ft tall and it has already produced many buds. They keep falling off! I know bud drop is usually due to over watering but is that always the case? I don't think I have been. Thanks for your time. liz GA. resident

Actually, quite the opposite. It is most likely a lack of water causing the flower buds to fall off, especially since they are still fairly new in the ground and we've experienced scorching temps thus far this summer. They are water hogs and need lots of water to stay healthy.
