Transplanting a Bird's Nest Spruce
My mother is preparing for a move and she advised me to take any plants that I want from the yard. I need to take them sooner rather than later, as she may not be in the house by the time spring rolls around. For the most part, I've been taking cuttings from her shrubs, but she has a Blue Bird's Nest Spruce I'd like to have. I know fall is a good time for planting, but is it a good time to transplant this type of shrub also or is spring better? I have very limited experience with evergreens. All other trees and shrubs I've planted in the spring, so this is new to me. Any advice?
