We planted an echium last week,in a pot in potting compost, in a south facing garden last weekend. It is beginning to sulk. Should it be watered in better? I have read that they don't like to be too wet, and can tolerate drought conditions.

Hi, Mina,
How much has it been watered since planting? Any newly planted plant - drought tolerant or not - needs regular watering after planting to help it establish. I have an Echium (here in Southern California) and though drought tolerant, it received regular water twice a week for a few months to get it established - now it's a monster!

Thanks Kathy. I didn't give it much water at all. Have now watered it, following your advice. Fingers crossed!
