With poor light levels and low temperatures, even the toughest of plants are likely to look a little sad. If you are growing them in the ground then there is little that you can do, but rest assured that they will quickly perk up with just a few days of sunshine. Containers can be moved under cover or to a sheltered position on really frosty nights, and the compost kept a little drier. This will stop them from going droopy. A bit of cold weather seems to do them good in the long term, and certainly makes their foliage green up. If they do droop, don’t be tempted to throw them out or over water them. You will be surprised at how resilient they can be!
