Good Morning. I have planted a white Solenum in a raised Garden bed. It is at the front of the garden and meant to spread across and down covering the front.
It is blooming and spreading beautifully. But! i can't let it spread (willy nilly)
My question is Can I cut off the spreaders that are attaching to each other whilst it is flowering?
or can I move it all together to the back and let it roam free up the bank behind us?
Please Help. I want to do it whilst we have a nice day.



If its only been in this year, move it now, before the root system gets any bigger. The only trouble is, if your plant is actually Solanum jasminoides (now renamed laxum) album, its tender, and won't tolerate anything much other than a light frost, so you might find you lose it over winter outdoors anyway.

Often suffers frost damage even where I live--Subtropical compared to the UK.
