    Why don’t you just dig around them a good foot to grab the whole thing n transplant them elsewhere or divide it into 2 parts? You can even cut these flowers for the house. Plant them in a good sunny area. I recall when I was young 20ish....I always wanted a flower garden n couldn’t afford all the flowers I loved. I would go dig them out from people ‘s garden. Yes I asked first lol... that’s how I learned so much about gardening. I for sure went through all sorts of issues but keep learning from my errors. Why I got a green thumb today. I never destroyed any plants, I always used them throughout the garden or simply plant what I didn’t want on the other side of a fence.

    I donít mind the Lilyís so much as the strawberries. The strawberries cover half of my yard. I did want to try planting a hydrangea where the lilyís are.

    Remove the lilies n plant them elsewhere. For the strawberries, yes if half your yard is only that you’ll need to dig them out or rent yourself a rototiller to turn the earth which that will ripe all roots for sure. Then you just have to pick up the roots n discard them. Landscaping is not an easy job but great exercise.

    Can’t wait to move in a few years. I’m looking for my cottage along a lake but I want minimum one (and more) acreage so I can plant all my veggies for my winter months, need a good size greenhouse and a few chickens for my eggs..I’m a “city girl” but like my tranquility.
    Omg sounds like a dream! Oh and I adore shallots! Can’t wait to see pics of your garden! I can envision your future cottage too!

    Oh, I want to purchase the fertilizer food for when I re-pot my seedlings. I saw this one in an article https://www.amazon.com/Neptunes-Harv...07382ca1e7e11b

    Thoughts?? I've read that once I re-pot the babies I should begin feeding......

    I only stick to good old fashion fertilizer like my grandpa was chicken manure. Man his tomatoes were massive. I do like shrimp fertilizer too. But bare in mine it all depends on the soil of YOUR garden. You might need a fertilizer that’s completely different. Basically if you have a good solid root, your plant will thrive. For tomatoes, you can buy a tomato fertilizer.

    Thanks Helene! My tomatoes are going into grow bags this year so I will purchase good soil. All that I've read says that I should start feeding the seedlings after the first (2) sets of true leaves BEFORE planting outside. One with the N, the P, and the K......

    You can since you’re going to plant in bags with good soil. Btw they do sell tomato soil so all in already balanced in the soil.

    @sisters3 how are your tomatoes coming along? It got all cold here again but I have started to take my seedlings out for a couple of hours a day. I got a simple plastic greenhouse and decided to try to harden the plants off slowly, hoping they won' t grow too quickly this way. Let's if it works.

    Probably warmer where you are than us. Wait a longer to take them out or report them if your 2nd leaves are coming out.

    Thanks!!! I was wondering when they should be re-potted. I've invested too much time and LOVE at this point to screw up now LOL
