The Q&A Archives: Transplanting

Question: HI
Sorry to bug you but I don't have a clue about gardening and wanted some guidance.

Q: I have two hollywood twisted junipers that I want to transfer into bigger (twice as big instead of one size bigger pots) Can I still do this in late spring?
Same question on my two sango kaku Japanese maples.

I inherited the specimens and wanted to put them in more attractive pots. Thank you so much for your help.

Answer: You can transplant your junipers and maples into larger pots now, or you can wait until this winter to move them. Either way, fill the pots with fresh potting soil and water the plants in well after you?ve transplanted them. To help them adjust, you might want to keep them in a site protected from hot afternoon sunshine for a few weeks after transplanting.

Don?t ever be embarrassed about submitting questions ? we?re here to help. Best wishes with your new plants!
