|Last year I planted a butterfly bush in my garden. Two weeks ago I moved it to a new location. Before I moved it new leaves were growing on it. Now that it's been moved, it seems to be dormant and is not producing any more new growth. Is there a way to save it?

|I think your plant is just pouting. As soon as the roots re-establish in the new site you'll see new growth. Butterfly bushes are really tough and hardy plants so I don't think you did any permanent damage. Be sure to water it deeply once a week to help it establish. As soon as it does you'll see new growth. Best wishes with your garden.
