Default Goldfinger Move

Here is a picture of the goldfinger corm. I posted earlier that I was going to move it to a better location. The P-stem died during the in the ground wintering but the corm looks good. My dog Meg, agreed.

The rootball was about two feet across and I am guessing weighed maybe 150 pounds, maybe a bit more with about 4 feet of Pstem left after I cut off 3 feet.

I lifted it a bit at the time with the shovel then pushed dirt under it until the crom was up quite a bit. Then I rolled the whole thing on a heavy piece of cardboard and pulled it to the new hole.

Default Re: Goldfinger Move

I put a bag of black cow around the roots. The big brown stem doesn't look to good but if the pups start growing, I will be a happy camper. The goldfinger will go in indoor storage for the coming winter.

Thanks for all the help.
