Q.Is It Possible to Plant a Norfolk Pine Outdoors After It Has Grown 6 Yrs?

maryK added on April 2, 2011 | Answered

The tree was a Christmas gift about 6 years ago. It was about 6 inches high. It spends spring, summer and fall outdoors, bringing it in before first frost. It is currently about 4 feet tall and for the first time is losing lower branches. Is it possible to plant it outdoors now? will it survive winter?

They are only cold hardy down to 25F. If it colder than that where you live, it will not survive outside. But, if it stays warmer than that, you can transplant it outside without a problem.
