My two Romas have been through the wringer. I transplanted them to pots on the porch after purchasing from Walmart at the beginningish of May. They were doing well, growing, blossoming, but seemed to be outgrowing the pots. I waited as long as I could and then put them in the ground.
My soil is terrible. Clay with rocks that I covered with several inches of bagged humus/composted manure. I am sure it isn't helping things. They are in full sun, and it's been terribly wet recently with a couple of dry days this week.
When I transplanted them to the ground there was a little blossom drop going on, and I expected maybe some shock and more dropping. Now the leaves are turning this color, seem a little crispy, and both are just generally droopy. Strangely, the tops of both plants are fairly green and healthy looking, with new bright blossoms that look strong. I pruned off leaves that were touching the soil yesterday, as they were yellow and shriveled.
What's going on here, and how can I fix this?
PS All the white fuzz is from a tree (I don't know what kind it is), which has been blowing giant fluffs of seeds all over the property this week.
