Where can I plant my screw pine? - Knowledgebase Question

Baton Rouge, LA
Question by ericnboo

I have had this screw pine for about nine or ten years. It's gotten so big that it's been outside in a pot for the last few years. I have taken it in for the rare hard freezes we've had. Now it's busted out of a very large ceramic pot. Can I plant it outside? If it's going to die when it freezes next winter, I'd prefer to put it in another pot. Please advise. Thank-you.

It is not hardy to your Baton Rouge area. Your options are to either put it in an even larger container or root the top by air layering it to create more but smaller plants which can be potted up and grown in smaller containers for a while.
