Moved 9 years ago to a property with an 80ft garden which was just like a field full of weeds! My husband has helped me create the garden of my dreams

@Andreamarie they are sensitive to cold, they will droop like that until they warm up, or it looks like It needs water. Did you recently transplant it? It could be shock

Maybe it wants a bigger pot 🤔 Also, be sure the roots get enough oxygen. Not really sure, just throwing ideas out there. Best of luck! @Andreamarie

Sometimes just the walk back to the house from unloading is enough to give it a little shock. Many are sold with that polythene wrapping to help protect them a little. Keep it away from drafts, or areas with lots of people traffic in the house too.

Thanks @richard.spicer.7906 @Dragon_Warrior and @treefrog44 . I bought several last week to do Christmas basket arrangements. They are in a light room, but not in direct light. The temperature fluctuats in that room though, so maybe it's that. I've moved them into another room now. I don't think it's a watering issue, but I gave it a big drink in the hope I would revive it (sadly not)
