Question: 883-312
I have a four foot Norway Spruce that is sitting on top of the soil in my garden. It is in a clay pot and the roots have grown through it. When and how can I transplant? Judy, Groton, CT

Mort's Answer:
This gripping story is easily remedied in the spring. This winter you can cut the root under the pot. This will cause it to develop more fibrous roots for a successful move. Be sure to account for the ultimate height of this beauty. Those pendulous branches will get 30 feet wide and the tree 100 feet tall. It is a fast grower and need aplenty of room. You can dig the hole now for an early start in early April.
