Can I Replant a New Tree in Mid-Summer?

Q. I planted a tree in small container in October of 2014. The tree is now 5 feet high growing well but needs water daily. Can it be presently moved to a larger container or placed in the ground or do I wait until Fall?

A. It is always a bad idea to plant from containers, either from container to container or directly in the ground, during the hottest summer months. The plant will struggle as it tries to reestablish itself, even for the best gardeners.

Wait until temperatures cool off, at least until mid-September or the first week in October. At that time you can either plant it in a larger container or put it in the ground.
