Aren't they going to freeze soon anyway?

Could it be that they have become so large in a small pot that they can not sustain themselves?

Agreed 12" is way to small. 20" or larger next year.

The problem is its not the whole plant just a few of the stems. They stay watered and fertilized. 275 20" baskets would not be economically feasible for me, besides the structure to hang them . Iam getting some of that dryness in some of my combo window boxes also------ Upnortdareh
