The Q&A Archives: Transplanting

Question: I transplanted a rose bush three days ago. It was imediately put back in the ground and it started to wilt at the top of the plant. I am a decent gardener and never had any problems with any other plants, but this rose bush has me stumped. I'm not sure if it will live or not. Please help!! Thank you

Answer: It's normal for the tender new growth to wilt after transplanting. I don't think you've done any major damage to your rose bush. Just give it a few weeks to adjust and then prune off anything that looks wilted or dead. Your rose bush will rebound and make up for lost time.
