How to transplant Wedelia?
1 Prepare the soil where you will plant the ground cover. Remove all weeds, and use a hand shovel or round-nosed shovel to loosen the soil to a depth of about 4 to 6 inches. The loose soil will allow the ground cover roots to penetrate the earth. 2 Remove a small section of the ground cover from its flat or the ground using the shovel. Keep as much of the ground cover's root ball intact as possible. 3 Dig a hole in the location where the ground cover will go. The hole should be deep enough to cover the ground cover's roots entirely. 4 Moisten peat moss with water. Break up all clumps, and mix the peat moss with the soil you removed from the ground when you dug the hole. Add some of the peat moss-soil mixture to the hole. It will help to improve soil drainage and allow plenty of oxygen to reach the ground cover's roots. 5 Place the ground cover in the hole so that the plant's entire root system is below the soil surface. 6 Cover the ground cover's roots using the rest of the peat moss-soil mixture. 7 Press gently on the soil that covers the roots. 8 Cover the soil surface with a 1- to 3-inch deep layer of mulch. The mulch will help to retain moisture in the soil, regulate temperature and reduce weed growth.
