My son kicked a ball at my plant and slpit the stems. Can i dig the roots up and replant them in two different places ? Thank you Miss Watson



Can you tell us which plant this refers to, please? Not all plants would do well after being split just now, especially one that is actively growing.

Thanks, Niknak. If the plant has not come into growth, you just might get off with lifting and splitting, but it would be risky, I think. If it is actively growing that could be a bigger problem. You could, however take cuttings now and get a new plant that way.
