Transplant and shock

Posted by Raff911 6 (My Page) on

So last night I transplanted my cukes into a bigger container. This morning their leaves look sort of wilted and droopy and flimsy. I am guessing they may be suffering from transplant shock. Is there anything I can do to help them progress out of that a little faster? I sure do hope they survive =[
Any help on this would be appreciated.

RE: Transplant and shock

Cucumbers hate root disturbance. If they have begun to vine, they may not make it. Make sure they are shaded and well watered for the next several days, and they might have a chance at recovery. I am in zone six and don't plan to plant cucumber seeds in the garden until mid-May. You might do better just starting over. They need soil temps of 55F or higher.
