I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!
Your County Extension Office is available to look at samples you bring in to diagnose and identify potential problems. Theirs is a free service in most areas.
To move that Mexican heather push a shovel into the soil around it about 10" from the plant on all sides then slide the shovel under it and lift one side to help you slide a plastic sheet or small tarp under it. Slide the plant onto the tarp. This makes an easy way for 2 people to carry the plant without disturbing the roots too much. Then reset it at the same depth and water it in well as you refill the planting hole. Keep it moist but not soggy. It may also help to place something over the plant to provide partial shade for a week or two.
Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
