Q.How To Transplant And Or When To Transplant Catalpa (cigar Tree) Seedlings?

Zone Zone 6 | Anonymous added on August 27, 2021 | Answered

In the springtime I planted cigar tree seeds and to my surprise 10 emerged. Now that we are heading into the fall I have 10 baby trees that I do not know if I should transplant outside or keep them inside for the winter?? They are about 8 inches tall and very flimsy. I am worried that if I plant them now that they will not survive a New England winter. I am in zone 6. Any guidance would be great! Thank you, Cassie Pontes

Since they are only six inches, I would keep them inside. They will need plenty of light though. Then in the spring, transplant them outside. That will give them a whole summer and fall to prepare for winter.
