Yesterday I moved Berry Smoothie to a new location only to find all the leaves falling over on the ground today. Should I have cut it back before moving?

I have moved them before and not had to cut anything back. Not sure why the wilting - I see you posted this some 6 hours ago, have you noticed the leaves coming back up?

I have never cut the leaves before moving. I usually soak them well before digging up and then again after planting. They usually recover by the next day.

Hi guys - I'm afraid I panicked and dug it back up, divided, and potted. I should have waited a day to see if it recovered but it looked terrible.

I'm sure it will pop back OK. Probably just transplant "shock".
