Answer: Transplanting in midsummer might be convenient to the gardener but it can be really stressful to the plants! I'd hold off on fertilizer until your sage gets its bearings and begins to grow again. You're doing the right thing by providing regular water. All you can do is watch and wait. Russian sage has a hardy constitution and it should recover when the weather cools down a bit. You might try to shade it from the hottest midday sunshine until it gets over its transplant shock. I'll bet after this experience you won't transplant anything until fall weather arrives!
