    Yesterday I removed 3, 4 foot burning bushes from a customers house. I carefully dug them out by hand so I could move them to another location at this house. No sooner did I replant them all the leaves and branches started to sag and wilt up. I added a little fertilizer to the hole I moved them too, and I am having them watered frequently. Any other hints as to how to get these through ths shocking period?:confused:

    Probably a good idea to trim back the branches also.

    How long were they left out of the ground before you transplanted them?
