A tiny plant ID, and a quick question about roses.

  • Would it be fine to just remove the tiny seedling with a bit of soil and repot that way? I assume it doesn't have any established roots yet, so I shouldn't need to dig down much right?

    Also will it be ok left outside in the open? I don't have a greenhouse, as I wasn't planning on growing any seeds / seedlings this year. image

  • Errm not sure of the exact plants growing near by (i'm so new to this), but there are definitely no trees in the near vicinity.  image

  • I'd dig it up with plenty of the soil around it, being careful not to damage the very fine roots, and pop it in a pot.  If it's a tree or shrub that grows outside, it'll be fine left outside in a sheltered corner. Just don't let it dry out - on the other hand, don't overwater it, especially in the winter. image

     All re-potted and hopefully no damage done image

  • Oww so would it be better to re-pot into a smaller one? You're not being picky, i'm to this so any advice is appreciated. image

    I'd go much smaller I_T. Not much bigger than the size of the root.
