I have a small Japanese Aralia (3' x 2') I wish to move to a new spot. When would be the best time to move it here in 7B? Anything I should be aware of? Other tips?
When the leaves are off.
Umm. That's an evergreen.
Instead, during the fall -- at the very least, during much cooler weather than we now have.
Another excellent argument for using botanical names :-) Japanese aralia = Fatsia japonica.
I still say fall.
