Transplanted a Gardenia

Anonymous added on October 26, 2011 | Answered

I transplanted a gardenia and a rose bush without pruning them down. They both look like they are wilting and yellowing. What can I do - it's been one week?

Prune them now. If you prune them now, you should be able to save them. When you transplant a bush, especially a large one, the roots get pruned because you can't get them all out of the ground. There is then more leaves and branches than the roots can support. Pruning the branches, even now, will bring that balance back in line.
