    I know that they have shallow roots and that they don’t like their roots to be disturbed.

    Do you think that they might have got damaged in the move?

    No, to see saw fly (see saw fly????😁) you have to have something for the saw fly to get its teeth into. No self respecting saw fly would bother to have a chomp at those.😊

    Now the top one - a saw fly would like the look of that one. Keep your eye on that.
