Reporting shimpaku?
« on: October 04, 2014, 01:37 PM »
Can I repot a nursery stock shimpaku in the fall?  Or should I wait till spring.

Thanks

It's a little guy in a four inch pot.

Safer to wait is what I gather!

Nice lil tree!

you can repot in the fall.  the main issue you need to address is the protection it receives after repotting. you don't really want it to freeze after repotting.  but, shimpaku are very tough and fall is a good time to repot them.

Thanks for the advice fellas. I'm planning on doing a little wiring and then reporting in the spring.

Where you live you can repot anytime as long as the roots are not frozen.
