    Alright so i bought some plants at home depot and put them out yesterday around 1130. 12. It was cloudy and 84 degrees. They looked good when I finished and also looked good last night when i checked on them. This morning b4 i left to work they looked fine as well. Today it was 97 degrees and when i got back from work,they looked like this. Im still new to gardening but have always planted outside with seed. This is my first time buying plants already started. Is this normal and,will they come back. My squash is what really looks bad.[​IMG]

    Squash especially does not like to have it's roots disturbed. When transplanting them, it's wise to keep them well watered in, and I'd keep them shaded until they are looking very perky all day long.
