Re-pot Dill Plant?

Posted: 05/02/2017 at 13:01

Dill doesn't transplant well in my experience and I always sow it directly into the garden. But those are much too close together and I think I'd risk pricking them out. Maybe not into singles, then the ones in the middle of a little group won't know they've been transplanted. You could pull out the extras once they've settled into their new space.

Just had a look around out there in the almost freezing fog. This garden has hundreds of christophii and I can't see any of them yet

Those that are up were planted very late, (Gee-Tee sale) and are either atropurpurem or 'Miami'. As usual I can't remember what I put where and I haven't grown either before so don't recognise them.

the one I can't smell is S. hookeriana 'Winter Gem'. Its label is still sitting on the kitchen table from planting it some weeks ago.

My Sarcococca confusa scents a wide area of garden in the worst of weathers. I have another, in flower now, can't remember which one, I can't smell anything.

Ideal time to sow seeds

autumn sowing is good for the totally hardy plant but neither of those you mention are fully hardy.

I have a forest of cerinthe seedlings but if we get a prolonged very cold spell they won't be there at the end of it

I'd put them in pots and nurture them a bit. They're bits of root, not bulbs and it amazes me that those dried up things survive at all. For a plant that can be quite invasive it can be hard to establish, even with fresh bits of root. The sooner you plant them somewhere, the better. roots need to be in soil or compost

I know nothing of plum trees but of course gardening is full of myth and old wives tales, that's life.
