Young maples declining post-shipping (southern hemisphere)
Hi, new to the forums!
I'm a young gardener in the southern hemisphere, just recently fallen in love with maples. A week ago I received six maples in the mail (2x ea of: sugar, silver, and red), they took 5 days to get here(!) and the supplier wrapped [sealed] them in black plastic! Inevitably they arrived in shocking condition, I immediately potted them up (sent bare-root) and put them in a cool shaded area with a light morning misting. A week on they've all declined bar one silver maple. This is incredibly devastating for me as I spent a good portion of my savings on these (I'm a student). I realise now they should have been shipped during fall/dormancy, alas all I can do now is deal with the situation.
So, what do my/their prospects look like?
I'd REALLY appreciate some help!
