Alan Ma­son (01400 272068; http:// se­nior­gar­de­nad­vi­sors.com) cau­tions that peo­ple some­times go to great lengths to move a plant, only to for­get about it once it’s in its new home. How­ever, ‘it’s the af­ter­care for that first year that’s vi­tal. If you’re in the gar­den and you’ve got a newly trans­planted shrub or tree, just keep look­ing at it. Think about whether the leaves look healthy or a bit small. If the leaves are smaller than you’d ex­pect, the plant needs wa­ter. It’s a ques­tion of giv­ing it as much chance as pos­si­ble’.
