Why is my newly-planted acacia robinia wilting?



newley planted shrubs/plants and trees need plenty of water untill there established especialy in this hot dry weather.

That's what I thought. It was well watered at the time of planting and again a few days later. I gave it a good soaking after a couple of very hot days and since then the wilt has got worse. I'm wondering now whether I've actually overdone the watering.

its a bad time to replant realy but just keep the soil damp you have obviously shocked the plants in the middle of there growing part of the summer . the thing is you mite get them back or you mite not . just dont give up yet .

Oh dear - I knew I should have waited till the autumn - but this specimen looked so good in the garden centre I couldn't resist it. I'll give it more time now and just hope for the best. Thank you!
