QUESTION: Ontario, Canada
We have pansies that we bought in early June. They are in hanging baskets and the bottom leaves are turning brown and dying. We water every day but they are getting worse. What can I do?

ANSWER: Check to make sure you are not watering too often. You could have root rot or stem rot if the top soil never dries out.  

More likely it is the temperature that is killing your pansies. They are cool weather lovers and will die out when the summer heats up. You can try moving them to a shady area where they only get morning sun to see if they will limp along. They are more of a bridge plant, looking good in the cool spring weather and then when the summer temperatures arrive, it is time to replace them with heat lovers.
