Hi I am a complete newbie here and total novice to gardening. I bought Sunflowers which were potted in 6" pots and they looked pretty nice.
I followed instructions on the side of the pots, dug down about 4" and placed some compost at the bottom. I am sure I lifted them carefully enough but not sure how careful I should have been.
Anyhow I replanted them in the holes and put in a mixture of compost and soil and patted them down until I thought they were firm enough and then turned on the hose and gacve them a good old soak...oh and I placed some smaill white stones around them to decorate.
The following day the leaves looked as if they have wilted a bit and in my mind the sunflowers maybe dont look as well as they did in the pots.
Oh I placed the 2 sunflowers at differing parts of the garden
HELP!!!!! Have I done something wrong?
What can I do to repair/rectify this?
Any help is much appreciated
