Q.Evergreen Planting in Oct.

Anonymous added on October 1, 2012 | Answered

I have been told to plant after the first frost. I’m in Buffalo, NY (Zone 5B). It’s cold. I am especially concerned with the Hinoki cypress, Chamaecyparis obtusa. Can I use it as a foundation plant? Are the roots destructive or are they shallow?
