Plants in 511 mix: drying from bottom up
Hello, brilliant community!
Over the past few months, I have bought four 6" plants and put them into 511 mix. One Ellwoodii, one rosemary, then two lavender. Each of them looked happy and then wilted and dried from the ground up. Transplant shock is my best guess. I posted photos of one of them: http://forums2.gardenweb.com/forums/load/contain/msg0202415028434.html
I'm at a loss. What are the specific steps that you take to transfer the little guy from store to new planter? Am I killing them by getting rid of the old soil too aggressively or is it the lime/fertilizer? I do pour through. I do not have a total dissolved solids meter to measure my soil's runoff.
