my new wife and i just planted our first garden. we planted the garden almost a week ago, and it's not looking too good. i have two "leadwort plumbagos" and they appear to be doing the best out of the eight. the two "thriller lady's mantle" are not doing so hot. they are sagging on the outsides, and the whole middle section appears to have died and turned brown! i have one "ruby star coneflower" and it doesn't appear to be progressing. the two "wood's pink asters" appear to be alright, but they haven't started blossoming yet. finally, the "easy wave white spreading petunia" is sagging and seems to be really heavy.
any suggestions? i followed the gardner's directions when planting, and have only watered twice since then. should i water in the morning, or at night? should i water more frequently or less?
thanks for any help you might provide me!
