Do I need new soil?

Post by silkyfizz on 12th November 2013, 15:51

I need to remove a rose that was incorrectly labelled as a bare root. I planted this in July and now find it clashes horribly so it has to go. I am hoping to plant in its place what I originally wanted. My question is this: As it is only a young plant growing there for a short time, do I still have to replace the soil in that spot? It has grown well and it would appear to have a healthy root system. New soil? Just some compost? Cardboard box? Or just bung in a replacement and hope for the best?

IMO, it had not been in the ground long enough to contaminate( leave any unwanted residues) it, could just add some new potting mix/compost and turn it over a bit.

Yep Maree, it sure is. Have no idea what to do with it. Probably bung it into a pot and give it away. Do you want it?
