If At first You Don’t Succeed…

I restarted the chervil.

I lifted the pots out of the tray to inspect them a little closer and noticed that both the chervil and parsley and long, wispy roots trailing out the bottom of the pots. Can you see them in this photo?

The wispy roots are the reason these plants aren’t growing, but what caused the wispy roots? Did I let them dry out and the roots had to stretch to find water? Or food? Is this a problem having to do with the nature of the newspaper pots?

I don’t know, but I’m going to try again. Im potting the chervil up again, and this time, I will be very conscientious about watering and I’ll keep the window nearly closed to minimize cold drafts.

Second time’s the charm?
