best way to transport yuccas

We transported these yucca trees around six weeks ago and they’re gone like this after replanting them. Just wondering if they’re dead, and if not, what would be the best way to keep them alive? Thanks.

I am sorry to say, but with plants that big, it is just tricky to transplant them well. They just don’t like to move and often it is extremely difficult to dig up enough root system to support them in the move.

Right now, the best thing you can do is to keep them well watered. Daily, if not twice daily watering. Some bone meal may help, but to not do any other type of fertilizer as this may hurt the roots.

Other than that, it is a waiting game and there is a good chance they may not make it. Sorry.
