My seedlings sort of got away from me this year and I am left with a large pot of Engelmann Daisies. I know its too hot but I will be going on vacation for 2 weeks and don't know if the person who might be watering my potted plants will water enough to keep them alive. Would it be better to plant them now and keep them watered well for a few weeks or keep them in this pot and hope a couple waterings will sufice? I am not going to be able to water my beds so I suspect lots of losses from those.
If you are going to have someone water your potted plants, Pot your daisies into individual pots. Make sure the pots are about the same size as those she will be watering for you. I'm in the same sort of dilemma. Right now, I'm trying to move a number of plants in gallon containers into larger ones that can go a bit longer between watering. I just hope the roots will be established in their new pots by the time I leave.
That's very generous of you Josephine, let me speak to the person I am asking to water and see what they say. I might take you up on your offer. I have a bed that needs to be cleared and reworked and those plants are slated to be used in it.
