BRUNNERA - Repotted Youngdaisydee!!

Taken your advice YDD and repotted. I feel terrible as I obviously got it wrong - I know it's all a learning curve - but hopefully, with a little luck, it might just survive.

I've place him under the conifers which are mostly shade with some sun early morning - but not much as we're blocked out by a mighty Oak next door! Thanks to all for the advice and fingers crossed now.....

i would cut most of it back OB and just leave the one leaf with stem

Oh right, I wasn't sure. Will it be better to do that then SB?

There is the one large almost full leaf left and a smaller probably half of a leaf left on another stem.

Help me out I cut it at the base of the stem, just above the soil?

God, what a kerfuffle. makes you feel awful when this happens doesn't it!! lol!

i would cut above soil leaving the good leaf, so the plant doesnt loose goodness through dead growth, but dont worry im sure it will survive

Cool. Thanks SB.

I'll go and do it now before the next downpour!!

Watch this space....

Hope it survives as it was lovely when I bought it :0(
