Container grown plants can be planted any time throughout the year. Fall and winter are great times to transplant shrubs and trees.
If there is a need to transplant an established plant, it is best done during the fall or winter months because this allows the plant to get established before our hot Texas summer months. When planting or transplanting, be sure to set the root ball at the same level the plant was previously growing. A layer of mulch over the soil will help retain moisture and also help control weed growth. Monitor the moisture around the plant and do not let the soil dry out. This is crucial to the life of any plant.
