Yes, if you separate them carefully, plant them slightly deeper than they were in the pot and firmly they should be fine....just may take a little time to recover.

Hi, Wills...did you not read the message above yours?

As I've said many times, SPs don't like root disturbance, that's why I usually recommend sowing two seeds per pot & plant them out together.

Thanks, KEF...glad someone appreciates my ramblings.  

Photography can be very rewarding & satisfying if we look just a little beyond the camera's auto settings. For instance, I don't think the moon shot I took the other night would have worked in auto.

oh, sorry David, I didn't know that.


That's okay, Sandy  I just wanted to illustrate the fact they are as tough as old boots & don't need any special care.

ok, I'll get a photo of it in the daylight, its really big, so I think taking it too far back may be too much as welsh onion says. I've no idea what variety it coming over the weekend. Thank you for your expertise.


They grow in brick rubble on derelict sites, railway embankments, gaps in walls, through tarmac pavements etc.....can't really make a case for TLC.

Don't worry, DD...didn't intend to get technical, promise.  The reason I asked is because while the foreground is in focus, the background is out of focus, this would indicate that the camera is set on auto. For both the foreground and background to be in focus a smaller aperture (maybe f16) would need to be used.

Most peeps are happy to use their cameras in auto.....still an excellent shot though.   

This may help explain:
