Why does my polyanthus look droopy and unhappy even though I used snail pellets

There are about a dozen of them planted under a tree. Theyve only been planted for a few weeks. The snails were on to them straight away so I put pellets down and it's not water as I water them every other day. The flowers are all shrivelled and the leaves are limp. I don't know what could be the problem.

Hi Julie,

Polyanthus are at their best during the winter/early spring. Once the hot weather appears, they do tend to wilt a little. Perhaps try when watering, a little seaweed solution in the watering can. This should help to pick them up. Be careful too not to over-water. Check the soil first before watering.
