Why Are My Okra Plants Wilting?

TerryC added on April 13, 2011 | Answered

I planted the okra two weeks ago, from a 6-pack. The plants were doing well. I put Miracle Gro tomato plant food on all the plants in my garden and only the orka looks wilted. The ground around the plants looks wet. Is there anything I can do?

It could be transplant shock or it could be that the excess water in the soil is smothering the roots. If it is transplant shock, this article will help:

If it is too wet soil, you will have to wait it out and hope the plants survive.
