Tips for sick plants

Howdy there . I have a section of garden that was planted over top of 3/4 crushed old cement . I had put about 8 inches of soil over the gravel before planting . every year I added soil enrichment … ie sea soil … mushroom manure . After a couple of years the plants ...mostly perennial plants started to have a burning of all the bottom leaves as well as black spot on my flox... I guessed that possibly the lime was the culprit...I tried to pick out rocks that I saw popping up. I have decided that after ten years with most of the plants not really living a happy life . I am transplanting them to other areas of the yard with more suitable soil. Now my question is . If I take the plants out , I am essentially moving the sick soil along with the plants . It is middle of August and they are pretty much at the tale end of their beauty . I had thought of getting a bucket of tepid water with some root stimulator added and rinsing the dirt off ….not all but most … before I place them in their new spot... adding a wee bit of bone meal to the new hole ...watering thoroughly…how does this sound ? I am worried about shocking them whilst doing this … I don't want to lose them . Help ! Best regards from Bernadette Greater Vancouver BC Canada

pruning vine crops

With all of the rain we have been receiving in Minnesota, my vine crops (squash, cantaloupe and cucumbers) are overtaking everything in my small garden. Will it hurt or kill the vines if I cut them back to curb their growth? They all have fruit/vegetables set on the vines.
