Q: I have a four foot tall fernspray false cypress in a crowded spot and would like to move it. When is the best time?
A: October is a great time to move shrubs and small trees. Air temperatures are cooling but soil temperatures are still warm enough for roots to grow for a few weeks more. Save as many roots as you can with the uprooted false cypress and move it immediately to its new home. Water deeply once, and then every two weeks until April in the absence of rain.
