Hemlock Seedling Under My Japanese Maple

KiddyPlanterMarch 17, 2013

So I realized that I have what appears to be a small Hemlock seedling growing under the Japanese maple in my garden. I really don't want to kill it, cause it's so cute, but I don't think it's a good idea to just leave it there, for the sake of it and all my plants around it. So I guess my question is, should I/is it worth digging up the seedling and putting it in a container till it is bigger (and I find a new place for it)? Or will it sustain too much root damage to grow well? Because the area it is growing in is rather compact and rocky.=(

P.S: The seedling I have looks around the size of the one in the link attached below.

Well, you're going to have to do something about it anyway...might as well put it in a container now. Spring is the best time to do it anyway. Are you sure it's Hemlock? Yew can look similar when really young and it's far more common to see seedlings in landscaped areas.
