moving plants around
I need some common-sense advice for moving plants from my back yard to the front. Or just sharing with friends.
I really thought that this early in the Spring, it would be easy, and the plants wouldnt suffer.
But, I shared some just dug plants with a new friend yesterday, and they were looking pretty limp and lame.
Is there a certain size for success? Like tiny, better than larger?
I know the advice about taking as much soil as possible, but couldnt do it in this case. My yard is super-dry.
But I did include soil from where the transplants were growing.
So, now I want to move a bunch of lupines from back to front. I suspect that smaller is better. But really want to get at least a few 2-yr olds in there to propagate for next year.
It is cool, shady and I am hoping that the time is right.
Am I set for doomed plants, or can I expect some success?
