Trumpet Vine dropping buds

Hi Folks, we are having an unusually hot and wet June here in Orange county New York. I am having a problem with my trumpet vine - a large number of buds are falling off the vine before blooming. I am wondering if this is because of the extreme heat or some other problem.

Thanks for you help

Nice photo, lovely bokeh.

The heat can cause bud drop, is the soil drying out around the plant?

RE: Trumpet Vine dropping buds

thank you - love taking photos of my plants - things have gotten better after I started misting the vine every morning.

RE: Trumpet Vine dropping buds

Misting will be ineffectual as it does not provide any moisture to the roots. You need to give the plant a thorough watering at the base. Several gallons at a time.
