Q. Transplanting Shrubs

How can I tell if the shrubs/bushes I have transplanted are still alive? The Japanese peach tree bloomed before I planted it, but when the blooms died, ┬áit looked like dried sticks. My gardenia leaves turned brown in the process of transplanting, but I’m not sure if the bushes are dead.

Q. When do i pick peaches from a Dwarf Japanese peach tree?

I recently moved to a house with a very pretty blooming Japanese peach tree. Now there are a lot of small peaches on it, and some have fallen off. They’re turning a bright reddish color, and look like they’re ripe, but are still quite hard. When is the right time to pick them?
Earlier in the spring i picked quite a few of the small marble sized green peaches off, they looked to tightly packed together. I don’t think i removed enough though, as there are still heavy clusters . I’ve never grown a fruit tree before, so am really not sure what to do next. Thanks
