I have Earliglow and Jewel, that were planted back in June, after the original planting got washed out in a flood in May. The new plugs all took and sprouted, but some varmit bit the leaves off a lot of them about a month later. They did come back eventually, but I had let the weeds and grass engulf them over the summer, lazy on my part.
But I did get out there last week and cleared the weeds out from around them, and they already look like they’re doing a lot better. Some of them are putting out runners. I watered them because they’re kinda exposed to the sun more, and it has been dry. They seem to be OK, but I’ll have to be more watchful of them. I think being in that thicket of weeds prob protected them more from drying out, plus there’s lots of dew overnight. But, I will have to be more diligent about them now.
