How well do conifers cope with being moved?
I've got a small/dwarf conifer that I need to move, Its planted in an old plastic pond, was here when I moved it. It's a bright pale/lime green colour, no idea if it's small as its been planted in the pond thing and stunted, or if it's just a dwarf, slow grower. Next dry spell the pond is coming out, and I really want to try and save the conifer. I will try and get as much root as possible, but do the have shallow feathery roots that spread out or long deep tap roots? No idea what to try and keep when I start diggin!!! Shoul I put it in a pot for a whole when it's lifted or straight to intended new home, and best way to prepare new home, what feed drainage etc? ? Cheers
