    Dear friends,

    Some of the trees and shrubs transplanted bare-root in the beginning of September, suffered great stress and lost their leaves soon after transplanting in my garden. I learned that it was a mistake to transplant them this way while they were not dormant yet...

    My question is: how can I increase their chances of survival so they start again in spring? Information:

    1) Plants which completely lost their leaves: clerodendrum trichotomum (but has some buds), albizzia, two young paulownia trees, buddleia (but started growing new leaves again), a kerria.

    2) I also planted a small hypericum bush which lost most of the leaves but kept a few.

    3) I scratched the barks to see if the cambrium is green and the answer is positive for all of them. Are there chances of survival during the winter?

    Thank you!

    CCR

    Same procedure as if leaves had not dropped, that is mulching, keeping moist etc. Due to lateness of season renewal of leaves not likely until next year.
