Question: Transplant fruit plants
Hi, I should transplant 2 fruit plants, for reasons of space, a cherry tree and a walnut tree that are about 2 years old. When is the right time to do this. Best regards and thanks.
Answer: Transplant fruit plants
fruit plants, such as walnuts, cherries, apricots, lose their foliage with the onset of cold and enter a period of complete vegetative rest, until spring; This is the best time to move them, even if it is good to do it only if they are very young specimens.
So when the plant has lost all the foliage we can proceed to uproot it, trying to remove as much earth 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 prepares a well-sized planting hole, with rich and well-worked soil; it is good to place the plant at the same depth as it was previously.
