This doesn't look good!


I had to move one of my “seed-grown” Shasta Daises and it didn’t like it a bit!
This little guy was angry at me and showed that tonight:

The “transplant shock” might have killed it, but I have faith that it will recover.
I gave it a new home that was carefully prepared with earth-worm castings, compost, and all of my usual organic amendments. His “mother plant” is this one that has early bloom clusters:

If you look carefully, the transplant is at the top-right in the above photo.
The little guy received a generous treatment of compost tea and sea-weed extract, drenched into his root system tonight. We’ll see how he looks tomorrow morning and I’ll post photos of the results. Hope this works..

When I move plants I give them a good 'haircut' so that the desturbed roots don't have too much work to do.
