Can I split this up?

Wed May 16, 2018 12:18 pm

I have a lobelia flower in a hanging basket and I want to transfer it to a long planter I am wondering if I take the circle root ball and break it to make the plant spread will I kill the plant. I have attached the pictures of both the basket and the hopeful destination. Any suggestions? Please and thank you Image ImageImageImage

If its more than one plant.. Then yes you can split them up.. For the top half gently pull away.. Bottom part you can relax a bit and not worry if you damage some rootsIve done this for my outdoor planters as well.. They fill in pretty quickly too
