I've found that if you water transplanted Sabals , of different varieties every day , that they grow almost within a few weeks . I just dug up a volunteer Sabal minor and watered it every day and it started growing soon after transplanting it in a pot . The same thing happened when I moved a Sabal Louisiana that started growing within a few weeks of moving it .
The problem many people may have it that they forget to water every day and don't keep their newly transplanted Sabals totally wet for about a month . Just soak the hell out of them and they will stabilize and grow pretty soon after root disturbance , but they must be soaked at all times .
Professionally digging them so that the rootball is pretty solid is also important .
Good luck .
