Trident seedlings

Planted this year, should I start throwing wire on now or wait a little longer? And would it be ok to plant them individually at this point and cut part of the tap root (since they are still so young)

Wire now or wait until fall. Or do some of each to see how they come out.

You can try repotting a few, maybe with and without defoliating - and with and without cutting the roots - to see which approach works best. In general I try to avoid repotting little tridents during the growing season so I can get as much growth as possible.

Now’s a good time to try making some seedling-cuttings too.

Oh good idea, I will try and take pics and share

So decided to try on a few, and came to the conclusion that it is to early, very delicate stems to wire. I was able to wire a few with 1mm and did tap root cut. Will see if any difference is achevied
