I've put a bleeding heart in a pot until I get better control of the wild violets. It looks like the wind has split the "trunk" of the plant. I'm wondering if I should add more soil to cover it deeper or to leave it to heal on it's own?

Thank you!

It looks like you didn't plant it deep enough to begin with. I suspect the soil should be up to the green.

Was your pot not deep enough? Did some of the soil blow away in the wind?
How long ago did you put it in the pot?

I'm not sure you should add soil now.
