I have had to move our lace sambuca inthe past week, its now gone into shock, have kept it well warterd and moved as much of the soil with the roots, all leaves have drooped now and look dead, should i trim these off or just leave it & keep watering? thanks



Keep watering and let the leaves drop off naturally. This really is not the time to move any growing tree/shrub... it may be am ex. sambuca

Thanks for the reply, had no choice with the move due to building works.

If you can get the sprinkler on so that the leaves get misted as well as the roots being watered... though you will need to give the roots more water than just the sprinkler. I hope it survives for you Dunnell - don't be tempted to feed right now as this will not help the tree establish itself.
