I bought 2 River Birches (in large containers) from Hewitt’s last summer. I was going to plant them they looked so nice on my patio I left them in the containers and cut them back to stop them from growing too tall. I over wintered them in the house and fertilized this spring and they’re still doing great but definitely not as full as when I first bought them.My question is, if I decided to plant them when would be the best time? Can they be over wintered again without repotting?
These are northern plants and moving them inside for the winter is actually very bad for them…they need and require a cold dormant period. It would be best to plant them in the ground right away and keep them nice and moist…but not soggy wet. A little Bio-tone in the planting hole would be nice for them too. Set them free!
