How to Minimize Transplant Shock
Transplant shock is a natural occurrence whenever a plant is uprooted from its former home and moved to a foreign environment.
Moving a plant from one place to another is not as simple as digging it up, plopping it in the ground and hoping it will be fine. Plants that undergo too much transplant shock can be open to diseases, pests, and can weaken them to the point where they never fully recover. If they are food plants, you may notice a smaller harvest or no harvest at all.
