Question: Transplanted fruit plants
Hi, I should transplant 2 fruit trees, for reasons of space, a cherry and a walnut which are about 2 years old. When is the right time of year to do this. Best regards and Thanks.
Answer: Transplanted fruit plants
fruit plants, such as walnuts, cherry trees, apricot trees, with the arrival of the cold lose their foliage and enter a period of complete vegetative rest, until spring; This is the best time to move them, even if it is still good to do it only if we are dealing with very young specimens.
So when the plant has lost all the foliage we can proceed to uproot it, trying to remove the breadth of earth as large as possible from the ground, trying to move most of the root system without damaging it. If the plant is young it should not have produced an excessively large root system.
Before moving it, prepare a large planting hole, with rich and well-worked soil; it is good to plant the plant at the same depth it was previously.
