2 weeks ago I planted 6 flats of petunias for somebody. They were all around the front edges of beds around the foundation and out in the middle of the yard. They were 4" ones. I watered them in real good before I left. I am told today that about 95% of them are brown. They have irrigation but I don't think it waters the beds as much as the lawn. I asked if they turned yellow and then died thinking maybe they were over watered but he said no, they are just brown. Now I have petunias at my house, granted they are in containers, and they are monsters. It sounds to me that they were just neglected and not watered. Then, when the homeowner saw them turning brown they wanted to water but it's too late. I feel bad for the customer because I told them the petunias would spread out and get big and be colorful for the whole summer. I told them I was very sorry and I felt really bad because I feel that reflects poorly on me. He didn't seem mad or ask for replacements or anything. I said I'd come look at them but he was like, don't make a special trip over here. He said I was just wondering if they turned brown and then came back. I said seems like they died due to lack of water. I'm thinking after I watered them in they never went back out to water and waited for a while and assumed the irrigation was covering them. I just don't want to be looked at like I did a half ass job and ripped them off for something that died 2 weeks later. What do you all think?
