Yucca Transplanting

Zone Sorry dont know | steberwill added on November 23, 2013 | Answered

We have recently moved to a property where there are a number of Yuccas. Some of them have been planted in inappropriate places and are bent over. If I transplant them, will they straighten up or, if not, what should I do please? We live in Whangarei Northland.

With yucca, you actually might have a chance of planting them "straight" depending on the variety, as most varieties are pretty open to re-rooting themselves.

You will need to dig them up as best you can. They tend to have have pretty deep tap roots, so you may not be able to get it all but do the best you can.

Then re-plant them a little deeper than you dug them up, at the angle you wish them to be at now. Water them well for a few weeks.
