Is anyone in the southeast USA transplanting japanese black pines yet? I have a few 2 and 3 year old seedlings that need new pots. They have some small buds 1/4 inch. I plan to move them into
"pond baskets".

I also want to apply the first wire to them to add shape to the trunk. Is that OK to do after I transplant them?

I am in Georgia zone 8.

Thanks

Frank

Newly repotted trees should not freeze. Repot only if you can keep them above 32. Also not a good idea to let them freeze with wire on them.

In Birmingham, I report at spring break time...Mid-March. I'd wire before you transplant to minimize root stress.
