The Q&A Archives: Transplanting

Questioner's Location: Plainfield, NJ

Question: Is this a good time to uproot a tree to be transplanted in a new location. Also are Daisy trees perinials again bought one from HD last season was told it was a perennial and it doesn't look that way.

Answer: Most trees are best transplanted in the fall after they have gone dormant, or in very early spring before they begin to grow for the season. Also, the larger and older the tree the more difficult it will be to transplant it successfully.

The Euryops plants trained to standard form and sometimes called daisy trees would be perennial in warmer climates such as southern California. Unfortunately, they would not be expected to survive the winter outdoors in New Jersey. I'm sorry that is not what you were expecting.
