Default How I Separated a Pup from a Container Grown Plant

I separated a pup today. I found it fairly simple using a (1) garden trowel; and (2) a rubber mallet. Since the garden trowel is smaller than a shovel and you do not want to damage your pot by trying to separate the pup, the trowel is small enough and the handle is long enough that you can pull it back out after you hammer it in. I don't know if this has ever been suggested before in a previous thread, but I'm just posting this for other people who want to separate a pup without removing the original plant from the pot.

I'm sorry, I did not take any pictures while removing the pup. I only thought to share after the deed was done. Just replace the full size shovel in the picture from the other thread with the trowel and the metel sledge with a rubber mallet.


Time to separate the pups for the Spring
