I have a question about a snapdragon that just came up on my driveway.. weird. The flowers roots I guess are in the dirt next to the driveway but the actual flower seems to be growing on the driveway. I have only been in this home since august of last year and it is now June, so I did not get to see if this flower was here last year as well. Anyway my question is, can i move it? and if so how and where? I love snapdragons and I was thrilled to see it growing, but I don't want it to get run over. Any help would be appreciated.
How about propagating the plant before you try to move it? Snip off some 6" stems and put them in rooting medium, and/or let some of the flowers go to seed and plant those where you like.
After you have backup plants, then you can try to uproot the main plant from the driveway. I've had no luck moving snapdragons, but theoretically you should dig it up with as many roots as possible intact, plant it in a sunny spot, and keep it well watered for a couple weeks. Do the transplant on a cool, cloudy morning to minimize shock.
Thanks, thats a good idea. Any suggestions on the type of rooting medium. I have never tried any so I have no idea of what to use. In the past I have been able to root some plants just by sitting them in water for a couple of weeks. I understand of course that not all flowers and plants can be rooted like this. I have many plants that need to be moved. I just moved to this home and the previous owners did no maintenance to the plants and flowers and trees and shrubs. Everything is overgrown.
