When buying flowering plants for transplanting in your garden (or new garden containers), it’s best to select plants that have budded but haven’t yet blossomed. That way, the plants will focus on root growth, leading to healthier, sturdier plants, rather than putting all their resources into blooming right away.
If this isn’t an option, immediately remove all blooms on the plant (no matter how pretty they are) after transplanting, so that the plant will focus first on taking root. A dash of root hormone powder may be required in order to divert the plant’s attention to root development.
