Help! My transplanted garden plants are in shock – what can I do to help them?

Question by Dona Anya: Help! My transplanted garden plants are in shock – what can I do to help them?
I just planted some nursery snapdragons, pansies and mullein in the garden. I “teased out” the roots as suggested, planted, then watered them. Now they are drooping over! What should I do? How often should they be watered?

They should perk up by morning. You can stake them to a stick if you have some to help them. Blocking the wind will help if its very windy.

Water daily the first 3 days, then every other day for the first two weeks.

Next time harden them off first by leaving the tray outside for a few hours every day and transplant them into your garden in the early morning and water immediately.

I suspect the place you bought them from either didn’t harden them off or didn’t keep them well watered.
