Q.Moving My Ozark Sundrop

Zone Toronto | Rivvi added on June 17, 2020 | Answered

I moved my plant 6 inches to the right of its previous spot. I did it yesterday, early morning. It looks very sad, has flopped. It was watered and protected from the sun. Is there anything else I can do to revive or help it on its way. It was 6 yrs old and bloomed profusely. Thanks, Fiona

Moving anything will be best done at the most mild portions of the year, and usually just a few inches is not enough to justify moving them. Transplanting mature plants, depending on the type, is very stressful, and should only be done if the benefits outweigh the risk.

Unfortunately, proper care is really the only hope, but when transplanting, it is best to plan on losing a portion of the transplants.

Here is an article that will help you deal with transplant shock:
