Q.How To Replant Large Jade Trees With Broken Roots?

Nielo added on January 24, 2021 | Answered

Hi. I’ve been gifted 5 large jade trees. Beautiful. Due to some landscaping they’ve been uprooted, with most roots destroyed. So they are well over 1m tall but with hardly any roots. How should I replant them? Should they get in the ground asap, or wait for broken roots to dry out properly? (I’m confused by other posts). They will be outside, in the ground. My instinct was just to plant them asap with some support so they can stand up. They’ve been out for 3 days and I’ve been watering the roots everyday.

They still have some roots so I would go ahead and plant them in their permanent location. (Add support if needed) Wait a couple of weeks for the roots to start growing before watering again. Here is jade care outside:
