A sad day....
When I first got into plants and gardening two years ago, my brother in law had given me one of his “seed starters” and I planted a variety of seeds over the winter in it to see what would happen:
It was one of those plastic “portable greenhouses” and I started some of the plants that I currently have including three Columbines. To make a long story short, one of them has passed away for no reason:
It breaks my heart, because this little guy was one of the first successes that I had in the early days.. :-(
Two others have survived, though and I’m researching that species to see what the other two need to survive:
The poor ‘lil guys are still in a horrible mix of “Scotts potting soil” that is over a year old, so I’m thinking that a “dry rooting” into organic potting soil might just save them. The problem is that they are very delicate plants and the re-potting process will be like “brain surgery”..
This will be quite a challenge as you can imagine. We’ll see what happens.
Their current pots are about the right size, but I’m not sure what I’ll see once the roots are exposed.
We’ll see what happens.. :-)
