Q.Should I Re Pot Saplings Now ?

Zone UK | det-dis added on August 1, 2020 | Answered

Hi, I have a couple of young Hazel & Sweet chestnut saplings, about 2 feet tall. They are in pots about 6inch diameter. I have just checked them, and a couple of tiny roots are coming out of the bottom of the pot. It is mid summer here in the UK (or supposed to be) so it put me off re potting them now, but I don’t want to leave them if it’s doing harm. Any advice appreciated. Baz

As long as the temperatures are mild, you can re-pot at any time. The UK spans our USDA zone equivalency of 6 through 10, so depending on where you are the temperatures may still be too warm.

Spring and Autumn are best, though.

Here are some articles that will help you to care for the trees:
