Transplanting Australian Native trees?

Posted under Home gardening tips | 2 Comments

I have a few small natives that are around 2 years old (1 – 2 m high) and need to be transplanted first into a pot then back in the soil in the later months as we are relocating home and must remove all the gardens…What are some tips, the best months to do so, will they live, should I prune them first? I also have some gardinas as well. Im not very good with gardening…

Hehehe, good luck buddy!
I reckon you've got a 50/50 chance with a native, especially that age. The younger the better really, and i mean young as in only about a foot high, they will definitly survive.
As for say a wattly, gum etc, big tree, you need to take pot luck with it, i would do it in winter, but you might want some seriously big pots. Pruning an evergreen like a native will do a little help but when you do transplant it will probably lose a lot of its leaves nd go a bit dead looking. It's up to you to keep it watered and hope for the best really.

    The important thing with any plant is to make sure you get enough of the root system. Dig the plant up around the drip ring. where the water runs off during a rain. dig down until you don't feel many roots being cut by the shovel, soak the tree in water for a few weeks to allow it to regain it's strength use a transplant fertilizer as per the directions.
