Russian Sage: Is it mourning or is it dead?
Yesterday I transplanted two russian sages and one catmint to a sunnier area of the yard. The three plants are in their second season and were in excellent health prior to transplanting.
Ten minutes after transplanting, they wilted! And I mean WILTED! 18 hours later, they are still droopy. Not laying on the ground, but very sad looking.
Does anyone know what happended and if the plants can be saved? I used root stimulator prior to planting and watered the area well after planting. They got a big dose of direct sun and wind yesterday afternoon. Could this have fried them? I didn't think much about transplanting in the afternoon given the hardiness of both species.
Any suggestions to revive the plants would be greatly appreciated.
