Oh No! Forgot to Water While on Vacation!
I went on vacation for a week and somehow forgot to turn the drip line back on (had been playing around with it before I left)...now all the mums and celosias in my front yard have croaked! Fortunately, the vincas are still hanging tough!
My question is, is it too late to plant (from big-box store) even some heat-lovers like vincas to replace the dead stuff? I usually wouldn't bother but it's my front yard so it looks kind of weird/bad to have rows of flowers with unsymmetrical space between(from the dead mums that I pulled). I always change those flowers seasonally anyhow, but don't want to wait for the fall to fix the problem, if possible. What do you think? (ps. this is the north side of my house...but full sun right now, and not really feasible to give them shade at this location)
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! (ps.since these follow a walkway path, I need something like vincas that will stay tidy/contained...nothing too sprawly).
