Burning Bushes

Anonymous added on May 8, 2014 | Answered

I planted 3 burning bushes around 6-7 weeks ago and they still look the same as they did when I planted them. When should they start showing growth? Right now they are still brown with a little green on the stems.

They are likely experiencing transplant shock. Continue to water, and depending on the size of these shrubs, you may want to prune them back by 1/3. This will help the plants to focus on establishing good roots. Also, give them some bone meal to help boost phosphorus, which helps with root development.
