Q.When To Plant Young Hemlock Trees.

Zone Shinnston, WV | BRNuzum added on November 11, 2021 | Answered

My childhood home has a hemlock that maybe 100 years old. We are selling the house and have found three baby hemlocks in our gardens that we would like to take to my current home. The tallest is about 6 or 7 inches high. We would like to move them before the house sells and the ground is frozen. How do we move them? I’m wondering if they should all be in the same pot and placed outside until spring. Or should we put them in the ground and mark where they are to keep them safe. What do you suggest?

As long as you transplant them to a shade area, they will not be too picky. They will survive temperatures much colder than you will see in your area, so transplanting them now will not be a problem, as long as the ground is not frozen.

They are very hardy and will survive just about anything, as long as you keep them out of the sun when they are young.
