I made the mistake of not realizing the sun was going to get much higher and reach a couple of the hostas I have planted in the shade. The leaves on one side are drying and curling. I am moving them to a spot I know they wont get any afternoon sun. Is there any tips to make sure they survive the transplant?
At the same time I am moving a couple of ferns (dont remember the variety) but they are very tall and the wind is causing them damage. So I removed some old ugly evergreen dwarf type bushes next to the house so I can put the hostas and ferns there. They will now only get north east light.

I would appreciate any tips or advice to make sure they all survive.

Thank you


Whoever said gardening relieves stress wasn't talking about the first year of a new garden :)

We have all made similar errors in choosing planting spots. I would transplant as soon as possible. Lots of water after the move will help them recover from shock. Vitamin also helps with transplant shock.
