Welcome. First and foremost, constantly moving in and out will do more harm than good. Next, I may be wrong but it looks to be planted a bit deep. Lastly, Winter is coming. Depending on where you are located it will start going dormant very soon, a requirement for VFT's. Others with more knowledge will chime in but that's my pennies worth. :D
