survival for uprooted plants,several days
i have to dig up plants that have been established for 3 years so a drain can be dug alongside the house - fried egg plant, (Mat poppy), myrtle, sweet olive, maybe natal plum. I'm worried about them - should i just plunk them into the big pots I have with a little garden soil, then put them back when it's finished? Will take 2 - 4 days. Can they survive some root loss? should I give them anything when they go back into the ground?
