Losing Mass Planting of Snapdragons
A few weeks ago I planted a large bed of snapdragons, maybe two feet wide and thirty feet long, at the curb edge of my lawn. A few of the plants were nicely sized (three inch pots), although most were in those little eight-pack containers.
They looked beautiful for about a week, and then we got a freaky cold spell for two nights, one of which dropped all the way into freezing digits.
The small plants didn't die but did drop all their flowers. The larger ones didn't really seem affected.
Now the small ones look pitiful, as their leaves are beginning to wilt. We've had a lot of rain, and the plants sit in full sun.
Could the one freezing night have weakened them? Is it all the rain or too much sun?
Please help. I really love these plants and, admittedly, don't want to replant the bed.
