Moving my queen Victoria lobelia

Hi all,

I have a huge snaking queen Victoria lobelia in a very large pot and I would like to move it into a bed in the garden. Is there a "right time " to move it or can I do it now?

    I have moved mine several times from the ground, where the slugs were really enjoying them, into pots . Considering how much messing about they had they have moved with no problems. They are quite tough but do think about protecting them from slugs.

  • Thank you Weedy? there's another job for the weekend then!

    I have one already in the garden and one in a pot. They are both equally stripped by the slimy pests. They are the bane of my life ?

  • Thanks Logan. I shall dunk it in a bucket and transplant it as quickly as possible.
