My plants keep turning dry and brown. How do I keep them alive?

When plants are at the garden center, they are watered frequently and get used to being pampered.

Then, they come home and sometimes sit on the front or back porch waiting to be planted. And, they don’t always get the care they were used to receiving. It might be they are ready for their new home in the ground or in a larger container. Until then, keep them in a part-shade spot and water daily - the roots, not the tops.

Thanks for writing!
