      Hi, i received this plant this spring / summer – i waited a few weeks before planting. Well, it looks seemingly healthy but, it didnt really grow?.. iwondering if i should put it a pot to build more of a root system.. mulch more? Maybe the soil was to compact? Odd…any advice wiuld be appreciated!

      Hi Margaret,
      Thanks for writing and congratulations on a healthy plant. Gentian is slow-growing and may hesitate after transplant. Yes, unlocking any potbound roots at transplant is surely important, as with all plants. If the plant is healthy looking then it is healthy, and will senesce this fall and surely grow larger next year, after its long rest. richo
