Early this spring, I transplanted a roughly 6' koto no ito to what I thought was going to be a better spot. Unfortunately, now that days are summer-sized, it gets way more sun that it seemed like it did during the winter. It moves to shade around 2pm, which is apparently not soon enough for the tree, which is starting to look rather crispy.
I have another, shadier, place to put it, but I don't think I should transplant again until fall, right?
So now I'm trying to think of ways to shade it temporarily...rebar pounded into the ground with pvc pipe slipped over and shade cloth in between? One of those flag/banner things you see advertisements on?
Any suggestions?I think it needs to be 8-10 ft tall or so to provide enough shade.
(and right in my front yard too!
Good thing I live out in the country isn't it?
