I planted some zinnias in my perennial garden. It had just rained 2". They came hearty and healthy from my local Mpls. nursery called Malmborgs. Day after I planted them, they shriveled. Why?

Hi,

I can't say with certainty what happened to your zinnias, but here is some information from the U that may help identify the problem. You might consider taking the plants back to the nursery for a refund. http://www.extension.umn.edu/garden/diagnose/plant/annualperennial/zinnia/leaveswilt.html
