Wilting Annie

Zone Zone 5b | Becs84 added on May 26, 2014 | Answered

My 2 Annies are wilting. I have them in a very sunny spot, water them lightly and have kept the soil well fertilized. Is there anything else I can try before they are beyond saving? I've had them for about 2 weeks now and they are barely surviving.

Thank you wrangler! This is the rare occasion I went with a plant I was unfamiliar with. We just had 2 days of a warm rain, and that perked at least one of the two back up to be pretty promising. There is just something about a fresh rain that transforms a plant far better than anything coming out of a hose. :-)

Assuming that you're talking about sweet annie, this article may help you with the basics for this plant: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/herbs/wormwood/wormwood-plant-growing-sweet-annie.htm
Like any new plant, this needs to be watered generously for the first 3 or 4 weeks. If your plants are wilting, they're probably too dry. Also, you don't need to worry about fertilizer until they are established, and then probably every couple of months at the most.
