Roots snapped off while transplanting...
What should I do?
Bought a 2.5mx3.5m frangipani.
Roots got snapped and squashed while moving it.
Unfortunately I have not been able to plant it in the ground yet due to fence not being in place.
Currently it sits on the lawn with some moist compost around it, hopefully only for another 3 days.
We are in winter here witch means rain. Should I protect the ground around it with a plastic sheet to keep the rain off it once the tree is planted? Do I need to treat the area where the roots snapped off with anything? We have very sandy soil here. Would it be worth to add perlite? What would you suggest?
