WHy are my sweetpea flowerheads drooping


By Pablo

The plants are very vigorous, lots of big leaves, and are very well watered.......why are the flowerheads drooping???




Hmmmm, I would have said maybe they need watering, but if the soil is moist, then I'm puzzled too?

Too much sun/heat? Where I am its been unbearabley hot for the past three days and I might have overwatered a lot of my plants thinking they needed more water because of the heat They might need a bit of protection. have you checked for any creepy crawlies as well? I'm not one of the experts but its worth checking. Welcome to GOY!
