Dig it up carefully, handle gently, as they don't like having their roots disturbed, getting as much of the root system as you can. Pot up in a fertile compost and grow on until it is mature enough to plant out.l

Lucky you Amy! I must check under my plant! DoctorBob: Do they self set readily or is Amy just lucky? Thanks

I am thrilled .. the parent tree has been beautiful but I did read somewhere that they don,t last many years so I would like this one to replace it if and when the time comes :0)

what i would do is cut it from the parent plant if it has roots but leave it there for another seasen there bye breaking the stress into to smaller halves.you have to remember i think that its not natural in a plants life cycle to be moved apart from when its a seed so the easier the better.depends what sort of a hurry your in.its only my ideas ,what do i know lol hope ive bean of some help
