So ... I've had a remodel (sick of laying lawn every year due to three border collies) and I had to move two red robins. One's fine, the other is dull wilted and not looking good. Any remedies for the poor soul or d'ya reckon it's too late? I replanted them about four weeks ago. Thanx

Chris I'd give poorly one  a bit longer.  Not same I know, but my overgrown one had severe hair cut few weeks ago and sulked, but after feeding and watering it is now picking up.

Chris it's your plant,your decision. I think I'd prune it a little. But wait until others reply on forum, I had advice about pruning mine. Hope it prospers.
