Wilting Annie

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.

Assuming that you’re talking about sweet annie, this article may help you with the basics for this plant: [1]
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.

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. 🙂
