Confusion about when to transplant trees/shrubs
I have always been a little unclear about this so I could use your opinions. I have heard two different things in regards to transplanting trees/shrubs:
1. Best time to transplant is in the fall to give their roots time to establish before freeze.
2. Best time to transplant is in winter when the plant is completely dormant and the foliage is gone.
Which is true here in the southeast? Or does it depend on the kind of tree/shrub such as deciduous versus evergreen? I have several things that could stand to be transplanted so is now the best time or should I wait?
Thanks for any advice! Sincerely, Squirrellypete
