It seems the plants were not that fragile. Even the ones that ended up on the floor with bare roots seem to be doing fine. Once back in the pots and roots covered they seem not to have noticed that anything happened. Hopefully the plants that are waiting in the shed to be transplanted will do as well once they are finally in their permanent locations. The ground here is too wet again as it rained last night. Hopefully in a week or so they can all go out in the yard and garden.
