Not sure they will stay white, I dig my whites out after a couple of years,they first turn to pale grey then a dirty pale grey/ blue, then they're out.

i have just one left now that had stayed white, but my soil is very acid,  

Identify please

Should be fine Nut, they're not really under way yet. Take a big rootball out it won't know it's been moved. You could put some compost down the new hole then trickle some rose feed in a circle around the top of it after planting.

It doesn't work on an iPhone Steven. You may not have the tool bar on your devise.its just across the top of where you are writing to us, next to the quote marks. 

Anyway, those roots, I just laid then on a tray of compost and lightly covered them they will soon start to shoot out.  When they have grown on you can plant them out, you could be sorry, it springs up everywhere.
