I have put my columbines in pots so that I don't loose track of them before the move. They have died back so it looks like pots with nothing but dirt in them. Will they come back in a pot? These are Bill's seeds from the Cancer fund raiser and they haven't bloomed yet so I really want to see which ones survived. They were mixed types and I really want them to survive.

Any advice you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Columbines, even in pots, don't always die back completely...they leave a small set of basal leaves. That doesn't mean yours are dead. When were the seeds started and how large were the plants? It's possible the taproot is still alive underneath the dirt and will grow anew next spring. However, I dug up some seedlings and put them in pots a few weeks ago. The top growth did die back, but a new basal set of leaves has already started to grow.

idea
I think they might......cause they do die down and spring back from the ROOTs in the spring.........Dont pitch them.
Mine are all dried and down and will be back.

They were started 2 years ago.

I'll move them in the pots then and hope that they come back in the spring.

Thanks all.
