My wife and I have a climbing fuschia that is about 5' tall and we decided to transplant it since it seemed too big for the container it came in. We bought a big plastic pot at Home Depot along with some 'Miracle Grow Garden Soil and transplanted it last weekend.
I also mixed in some Bayer Advanced Garden 2-in-1 Systemic Rose & Flower Care into the top 2" of soil.
The thing I am wondering is that the leaves are all wilted and drooping now and my wife thinks I killed it because one of the roots was climbing out the bottom of the original pot and it got pulled out of the root ball when I removed the fuschia from it. Is it normal for the leaves to droop like that after a transplant?
What are your recommendations for caring for it if it is still alive? By the way I am in the San Francisco bay area and the fuschia is on our patio where it gets filtered afternoon sunlight through clear fiberglass panels in the patio roof.
