Stumplings are cuttings from the tops of roots - like carrots, turnips, onions, celery, etc.. I think Plantoid coined the phrase.

Anyway, I have a few turnip stumplings growing in my window right now hoping to get seeds from them this summer.  There seems to be a few plants on each stumpling. Stumplings Img_2016

My question is should I cut them into individual plants and put them in their own pot, or leave them as they are? What would you do?

I would leave it so as not to bother the roots.

I suspect it is one root with branchings from the stump.  I would leave it be and not separate them.  If you have two pots of a kind you might try splitting hte root of one pot like you do an over grown perennial flower for comparison sake.

After planting the turnip stumplings, I neglected them and they eventually got covered in aphids and died. Sad I'm a bad turnip stumpling mummy.

BUT, I always have good luck planting celery stumplings, not that they make huge stalks or anything. Just leaves and stems for flavoring and salad ingredients.

 I don't recall trying using the tops of turnips for stumplings .

This year our crop has failed big time , too cold &  wet during germination phase.
 I will be trying a few late sown squares in the next couple of days  .

However , I think you may be able to get roots on the top 1/2" of a turnip so long as there is still greenery on it .
 Then stand the fresh cutting in a saucer of water , change the water every day & see if it has grown tiny micro roots at the end of 14 days .  If so plant it so the soil is just level with the grrenery & treat the area with slug pellets as slugs just love such juicy brassica cuttings .


If if fails to grow please post the fact , so we can think of new ways such as using a rooting hormone compound & then planting it straight away .

 Once the stumplings grew to about 10 iches tall I dug them up wrapped them in a collar of corrugated cardboard  held on with a weak elastic band & then and planted them down 3 inch holes nearly a foot deep 7 watered them in well .. they came us as strong blanched hands of celery .

 Making that round one foot deep hole ..
It's  Easy Peasy .

  Get hold of a  3 " diameter by 15 inch long length of plastic water down pipe or a soda drinks bottle with straight sides .  Excavate the hole to about a foot deep , hold the tube in the hole , back fill the hole tamping it down round the tube gently  .  Now twist the tube  whilst gently pulling it out th ground .

Hey Presto !  a purrrrfect 12 "  deep round planting hole  .

 Do the same to get perfect plant pot sized holes using the same sized plant pot or the one with the plant in it when you want to plant out  an un potted plant but don't want to disturb the root ball
