Can I transplant my coastal wistringia?

Hi, Can I move coastal wistringia (mauve colour-not the white} I have had as a hedge for many years & replant as single shrubs please? A friend who looked after my garden while I was in hospital cut all the sides off & it is now just bare branches on sides & couple have even died.Have tried everything for last 12 months to no avail so now I would like to move them as they look terrible as a hedge & I don't want to lose another one.Thank you for your help & your time.Regards Beryl.

Hi Bev,

Native plants don't respond well to transplanting. Even though westringia is a pretty hardy plant, if you did transplant them, you would need to take a decent size root ball and water them in well with a seaweed solution or Yates Dynamic Lifter Liquid Concentrate. It's an organically certified fertiliser, which contains seaweed, blood&bone and fish meal to help developing new roots and restoring healthy growth. This product will help to lessen the shock and hopefully they will have some chance of survival. Continue to apply the solution until there is some signs of regrowth on the plants. Good luck with that.
