Dying Oleander SUGGESTIONS???

nicole007June 28, 2013

Long story short but I wasn't able to plant my oleander - and now it's really hot (zone 7b) and still in the pot. It's dying. What should I do now? It acts like the sun is too much for it so I moved it to part shade. I don't know if it's sickly because it was not transferred out of the pot (which was never my original intention). Now, I'm concerned about replanting it in a bigger pot or in my yard because it's so hot and I've heard not to transplant in hot weather.

Baloney! I transplant all year round. Go ahead and repot it and fertilize it in a few weeks with a small amount of 6-6-6 or 10-10-10.

I agree....your plant would be a whole lot better planted than sitting in a pot all summer. Planting IS successfully done all year round, even in the deep south. What's NOT done is transplanting.....digging up an established plant to move it.

You will need to provide plenty of water....and I would not fertilize.
