I've been given a small plum tree but it's in a small tub and I would like to know the best time to transplant to something much bigger. Thank you



Is it essential that it is grown in a pot? most plants much prefer to be grown in the ground, the time to do either would be in the dormant period,ie, end of october to end of february, derekm

If it needs to be in a container, make it a big one, around 3 feet tall and wide, and be prepared to do some creative pruning on it to maintain bloom and fruit. Reading books about bonsai growing would be beneficial. Remember also that trees in containers need more frequent watering and feeding than those in the ground.
