Deciduous plants have vegetation and rest seasons. They are insensitive to transplantation during rest and sensitive during vegetation.

Transplanting - when transplanting a plant with open roots. Transfer - when the roots of the plant are transferred to a larger pot or open ground in a potted plant without damaging them.

Open-air (open root) planting is restricted to the dormancy of the plant, which begins after the first severe frost, when the leaves begin to fall and continues until the leaves begin to burst from the buds. If the frost is formed in winter or it is thickly snowy (this is common in Lithuania), then it is not planted because it is inconvenient. The time of gardener fairs may not coincide with the dormant period of the plants, as the organizers of the fairs are business owners leasing commercial space, so they do not have to pay attention when it comes to planting plants.

Planting with open roots at the end of the year. At the end of the year, it is recommended to plant only frost-resistant plants. During winter they will not grow and may freeze. Avoid planting the first seedlings of cherry, peach, nectarine, tea rose in Eastern Lithuania in the fall. Instead, plant second-year plants from pots or plant in the spring when the plants from the special storage area will arrive at your home the fastest. Planting on the Lithuanian seashore in the autumn is less risky, as in February in Varėna it is -30C, in Palanga it is only -12, -15C.

Planting with open roots in early spring begins as soon as the frostbite has dissolved. Rooted plants (e.g. willow, osier willow) as well as hedgerow plants, which are usually outside the watering hose coverage area and will be watered only once during planting, should be planted as early as possible. Other deciduous plants are planted with open roots until the buds begin to burst and are late to planting if the seedlings have blossomed and blossomed (unless your dealer instructs you and you are guaranteed a birth).

Planting deciduous trees with root tuber is an intermediate option. Excavation of such plants is carried out in special technique, the clump of roots is wrapped securely in a wire mesh and, for large plants, in a wire mesh. Plants that have already drooped can be planted successfully, especially if the plant has been planted with a full root tuber in a larger pot.

Deciduous plants freshly planted in pots (see Planting with open roots)

Deciduous plants grown in pots (planted in them last year) and grown in pots can be planted all year round, but in mid-summer the needs of the plant must be taken, not planted on hot days in very fertile, oily soil, because you would "burn" the roots. Also when planting in the middle of summer you know what the root volume of the plant is, the roots will continue to grow slowly, so you have to keep the roots dry until the winter, watering the lawn trees and shrubs in the lawn gradually pour a bucket or two of water onto the roots; and the tomato must be pampered, not overgrown with grass). In the second half of the summer, the days are shorter and the plants are getting ready for winter, so planting now needs to be planted on leaner soil, discouraged by growth, not fertilized with nitrogen, not put on dung or greasy compost. It is better to leave these goodies at the bottom of the pit so that the roots of the plant reach them next year.

Coniferous (and evergreen deciduous) planting is slightly different from deciduous deciduous planting. Thuja / Chamaecyparis / Taxus can be transplanted with open roots in April-June and then in September-November, provided that the soil is watered regularly and abundantly after planting. Other conifers with open roots are planted in spring with a slight warming of the ground (late April or May). From the pots, most conifers can be transplanted at any time, avoiding the transplanting of pine trees or lush conifers in the second half of the year. Conifers, unlike deciduous trees, do not have a dormant period and need nutrients in smaller quantities, but throughout the year, so it is useful to fertilize the spring with slow-melting fertilizers (5-6 months).

We transplant indoor plants at the end of the heating season and when the premises warm up, usually in May. If your premises are heated indoors, transplanting can be done earlier, from March to April. All plants with fully grown roots should be transplanted immediately, regardless of the time of year.
