Zone 85253 | hummer611@hotmail.com added on March 14, 2022 | Answered

I have 3 babies under my huge Joshua tree . One is about 10 inches tall with many spikes. The other 2 are just a few spikes. When is it safe to transplant them in another area of the yard? And how should I do that? Thanks.

Now can be a good time. Really, any time of year is fine with this one. The best time is Autumn, but that isn't to say that it won't do well with a transplant at this time.

Just be sure to balance watering. These trees would rather a decent dry out between waterings, if you can help it. Just don't let them remain dry for long until the roots have established, and you see significant new growth.
