The Q&A Archives: evergreen trasplanting

Question: I have several evergreens that we had planted approx. 5 years ago as seedlings. I want to transplant them in different areas of my yard. When is the best time to do so?

Answer: Either spring or fall, when the weather is cool and rainfall abundant, is the best time to transplant your evergreens. Cooler weather will minimize transplant shock. After replanting, water deeply to help settle the soil and if the rain doesn't cooperate, be sure to water once a week.

Best wishes with your landscape!
