New Rose, And A Transplanting Question
We went to the garden centre earlier. We have a new trellis which I plan to get Honeysuckle and Crimson Glory roses to grow on next year, and OH has hoops to train the wayward monster that is the Mange Tout on in his vegetable patch. One of my Morning Glories is already attaching itself to the trellis we bought especially for them, so yay! The new rose is called Sweet Dream and is a lovely, delicate pale pink. Pictures to follow once it's been soaked for an hour and planted, as it really is insanely pretty! So here's my question; it's about Snapdragons. I noticed a Snapdragon growing next to the garage a week or so ago, and it's a particularly attractive red one. I decided that I'd like it in the garden because I adore these plants. On getting home from the garden centre OH asked me if I could try to pull the Snapdragon so I could soak it for a while and move it to my border. I managed to pull it out in one piece with roots attached, but it was growing out of the garage wall instead of from the ground, so I had to pull it horizontally instead of vertically. Will soaking the roots and surrounding the plant with manure help it to settle and grow? I'm finding a spot for it at the same time as I plant my new rose, in about half an hour, but I don't know how much a Snapdragon might be traumatised from being pulled out of a wall and moved into soil.
