Re: hello and rot salvage




Pat  Ohoro said - <<So, is it better to dig up the others, carve them down,
and reset
them?  Or let nature take its course?  If I carve them down, how big of a
piece do I need to get the plant going?>>

It depends on your temperment - most on this list would probably say throw
them out and try again from a better source of named plant material.  The
ones you have may take more than a year to recover enough to bloom.  My
approach is the least energy intensive - let nature take its course.  If you
carve them down, be sure and get rid of all the rot and doctor it with
something - around here folks use sulphur, but most on the list seem to use
chlorox or comet.  How big a piece you will need will depend on lots of
things, including growing conditions, natural vigor of the variety etc.  At a
minimum, you need something green and preferable some roots.

Happy gardening and welcome to the rot club.
