was the compost very cold? I have found this can be a problem as they have been warm. also the fine roots get damaged which leads to the wilting. they may well recover in a day or too. water them lightly.

thanks very much for your realy usefull answers its give me peace of mind if anything? i brought the compost in the house the night before so i think the compost was warm enough, i must have damaged some of the small roots,and your right they have started to pick today ,once again thanks for your advice.
