Recently Planted Heather Turning Brown
Question From: Cedar Park, Texas, United States
Q: Received a heather plant as a gift. Did not water for a couple of days. Planted and watered and a week later it seems to be turning brown. Is it dead? It still has buds on it.
A: Cut off a branch and look for live wood. Heather needs moderately moist soil. A moisture meter
, available at garden centers, at big box stores in the house plant section, and online at amazon.com
, will help you figure out when to water. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
