      Hello Petia,
      I am sorry, these were recently enabled and sold out in 2 days. Hit “waitlist” again, I have a new planting coming on, don’t really want to count my chickens but it looks like a big flock, we will enable these again when the plants size up, do not hesitate to order once the e-mail comes in.

  2. Question

    Amy

    I got a plant in December 2020, it was growing nicely until critter or wind snapped the whole stem off its base. Since then only few tiny regrowth have come out but they all ended up dying. Is it anything I can do to save the plant? I’m in 8b (Central Texas). The plant stays in a shaded area. And I’ve been keeping the soil moist. Thank you much in advance!

      Hello Amy,
      Thanks for staying in touch. Always wear gloves when working with aconite. Aconite develops a primary tuber and then secondary tubers, any of which can be dug and replanted. It is hard for me to know if your plant prospered for long enough to create viable tubers or not, but if you dig it up and check, then replanting the tubers, any of them, to a new position may well hit the “restart” button and you can get your plant back–or more of them. Shaded and moist certainly makes sense in Texas!

      Thank you so much for the info! Would now be too hot to dig up/unpot it, given the daytime temperature is at 90s.

      And would aconites do okay indoors, given enough light (grow lights)? I am considering moving the plant and the Chinese Aconite to an air-conditioned room with grow lights, at least for the summer. Thanks so much again!

      Generally the digging and division is done in the autumn. I would keep them in outdoor conditions, they’re just going to suffer inside, now that they’ve tasted freedom.

      Okay, that makes sense… I guess they will just have to suffer the heat for a few months like the rest of us…

      What maintenance care would you suggest while I wait for cooler temperatures to dig up the monkshood? Just keeping the soil moist and keep it in shade?

      Thank you so much again, Richo!
