I transplanted some bare-root thimbleberry bushes into my yard in Vermont, in a mostly-sun area. This is during a dry, hot, sunny spell. I transplanted them in the evening. The next day when the sun hit them, the leaves dried up. I covered them with sheets for the rest of the day, to let the roots develop without losing so much water, but the damage seems to have been done. The leaves are all dried up. The roots might be OK or might not be OK. I am wondering, if the leaves all dried up, does that mean they're dead? Or might they re-sprout from the roots? Is there any hope? Is there anything I can do to help them?

If the soil was damp, I think the roots are okay. The plants were probably grown under shadecloth and the sun was just too much for the leaves. Keep them watered and be patient.
