My plant was doing really well and then overnight about a fortnight ago it started to wilt. Finally realised it had been overwatered but how do I fix it.

Answer: Hi Kate,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

For overwatered plants, we suggest cutting off any of the wilted leaves and brown stems, improve soil structure to prevent further waterlogging and you may add some liquid fertiliser to help new growth. Try Dynamic Lifter Liquid Concentrate. It’s certified for use in organic gardens, and contains seaweed, blood&bone and fish meal to help developing new roots and restoring healthy growth.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
Yates Horticulturist
