I believe that Vitamin B1 solution can be used to prevent shock in transplanting. I could not find a transplanting solution for transplanting some roses at my local gardening store. In lieu thereof, I went to my local drug store and purchased a bottle of Vitamin B1 tablets 100mg. I mashed two Vitamin B1 tablets in a half gallon of water. Would this substitute be effective for transplanting flowers?

I do think this could work. Vitamin B1 is water soluble, so as long as the vitamin tablet has been crushed up sufficiently, the plants should be able to access it.
