Mezoo plants #750046

Asked May 15, 2021, 9:50 AM EDT

I recently planted a border of Mezoo plants in my old wagon. I spent a half of a fortune. To be nice to them when I planted them, I added some Osmocote into the soil and watered them in. Now, there all wilted, droopy...and look awful. What happened? Will they come out of it with some sun ? Or are they a loss? I had some in a large pot last year, and they were beautiful. Help

I think you have planted them outside too soon.  They can tolerate temperatures in the 40's and 50's for a short time but are basically a plant for hot weather.  They also do not need to be fertilized and need well drained soil.  They cannot tolerate wet feet.  All you can do now is ignore them; do not water; do not feed.  Hopefully with the warmer weather ahead they will recover.
