Transplanting Lambs Ear

My cousin gave me a lot of her Lambs Ear - it looked great yesterday - we planted it all across the front of the house 2' apart. I turned the sprinklers on last night but it probably didn't get much. This evening when I came in from work, they are all limp and sad looking. Should I prune them all the way back to the ground or will they be ok in a few days with some good watering?

They'll look sad for a little bit and then take off. Just water them when dry.

Oooh thanks Barb!!! I've been sitting here refreshing hoping someone would answer.

Yes, I'm a nerd. lolol

RE: Transplanting Lambs Ear

There is nothing nerdy at all all watching those plants. I give all my plants a daily inspection, almost military style. I find out what's doing well, encourage the problem children and compile a list of what needs to be done.

Ok,, I admit, that actually is sort of nerdy. But my wife gets a good laugh out of watching me!

Happy gardening!

RE: Transplanting Lambs Ear

Barb is exactly correct.....they will sulk for a few days, but will recover as long as you don't over or under water.

RE: Transplanting Lambs Ear

Ok so no one will laugh at me if I confess that while I was brushing my teeth this morning, I was out patroling checking on the Lamb's Ear? And it is looking better!!

Welcome to gardening and the garden web.
No ones laughing here. In fact once you get to know us you find out what a bunch of characters we truly are.
Some of us go outside in our PJ's do a walk around and before we know it we're hard at work in our PJ's.
Of course I only do it my back yard LOL. I get into my street clothes for front yard work.

RE: Transplanting Lambs Ear

Thanks for the welcome, and I'm another one that will walk around the backyard in pj's so I think I'll fit right in!

Also, I've posted several questions here over the past few weeks and I really appreciate the help and advice you give.

Thanks a bunch!!
