transplanted butterfly bush
I've got a butterfly / bird shade bog garden and a sun bog garden in the west side of the house. I moved my butterfly bushes to the west garden late last fall.
Well, the spot I put them in used to be sunny. With all the fertilizing and watering since I've lived here, the trees in the woods are putting out more limbs, leaves, and shade. This spring the butterfly bushes are in part-shade.
They weren't doing much at all, so I decided to risk it: Transplant at the wrong time of year when it's hot and dry.
I did a great job amending the soil and planting them, lots of mulch. These bushes are close to the house where I'll keep an eye on them. Give them lots of water daily for a while.
What are my chances that these bushes will make it? What are my chances that they'll bloom nicely for me??!
