This is the second one I have planted. After a couple of days the heads droop and then look as though they are about to die, why is this?

On plant Eryngium



when you plant them you have to water them well for a week or two, especially if you have not had any rain. If the soil is clay dig compost into the clay to help the plant get its roots out into the soil.
