My serviceberry transplant is in shock - what can I do.
I bought two serviceberry shrubs at around 12', each for $250.00.
I removed the metal wiring around the burlap rootballs and removed some soil from the root balls, prior to placing them in the groun following the usual procedure.
I think I took too much off of one. It was loosing leaves here and there, where as the other is fine. But now, it's lost almost all of its leaves.
If it looses all of its leaves, will it stay alive and go dormant in the winter and awake in the spring alive?
I applied root growth stimulators (solution, diluted). Can I feed the roots of Amelanchiers with cane sugar, as you can with birches and not with oaks?
DO you think that if I water it every single day, twice a day, it will survive?
What can I do. I think it really went bad by not watering it for about 4 days in the heat.
