Default Head starting indoor pups during Winter

I cut the main plant down to just over soil line and split to plant indoors for Winter to see if I could grow a few. Main plant I believe is Mysore. Always a big, beautiful tree, was difficult to chop down and try, but appears all is good.

Thats a strong looking pup!

Will these stay in their pots when moved outside in the spring or will they be planted in the ground? Nice looking plants.

Hi, all of my plants during Summer are in raised planter boxes due to the depth and density of the clay soil in my area. The pots they are in are for overwintering.

Would the "raised beds" be equivalent to a large pot? The reason I'm asking is I have had some of my plants in the ground and dug them and put them in 15 gallon flower pots for the winter. I am thinking of leaving them in the pots when they go back outside this coming year, maybe mulching around the outside of the pots. They are getting too big and heavy for me to handle and to do lots of digging (have back problems).

Yes, they would..however being rectangular, square..the plants have more room than most pots. I Love the raised beds and plants seem to as well. So much easier to dig out and repot in a smaller pot over winter. Check out the pots section on this forum, or pics in my gallery of my beds I made for reference. If you have any questions just let me know. Gary
