    Wilting problem


    There are partially and fully grown plants in my garden. All was going well but now all of a sudden they are wilting. Do you know what might be causing this problem? How can I fix it? Why would they grow fine and then start wilting at this stage? What signs should I look out for in the future that this problem may still be present to some degree or another?

    "As a quick answer, do you have clay under the soil in the garden, I've seen quite a few gardens suffering from wilt when there is a high clay content.
    If the answer is yes you may find the massive downpours in quick succession are too much for the soil to drain.
    Maybe you can use a fork around one of the plants and see if it perks up. (You also have to be careful that any waterlogged roots don't fall victim to root rot.)"

    "Soil condition could be the cause, use fertilizer and also water regularly"

    "Are there particular plants that are wilting or all of them?
    Is it a newly planted garden? if so what type of soil do you have?
    Are they planted through any membrane or with any gravel or slate up against the stems?
    If you send me some photos I could try and assist?
    When you planted did you separate and spread the roots? Planted in any compost/fertilizer?
    I’ll try and help
