I have a small pink blossom tree and want to move it to another location. Is it ok to do that now or is it the wrong time?



Hi Jeany and welcome to GoY f it is a tree that flowers in the spring then moving it now is likely to cause the flowers to drop. Wait until autumn and then move.

Moongrower's right, but I'd add it depends how long the tree's been planted where it is - if it's only a year or 18 months, I'd move it now because it just gets more difficult the more roots it puts out. Even after 18 months, there'll be some large roots spreading out horizontally as well as down into the soil. You may lose the flowers this year by doing it now though, and if you do risk moving it, you will need to make sure it gets a minimum of 2 gallons of water a week until end of Autumn this year.
