They like to be kept moist,rainwater only (altho' ocasional tap water is OK,) and give it some iron sequestrene which helps them take up feed . Not too windy a site and beware early morning sun which can damage flowers if you have any. Move next to house if frost threatens as this will brown any flowers. Particularly important to water well in late summer/autumn as this is when next spring's flower buds are formed. Be patient and it may recover. If not treat yourself to another one and try, try, tryagain. They are so lovely that it worth persevering.
