I was wondering if it was OK for me to transplant a Yaupon Holly this
week in San Antonio, Texas? The reason why I ask is because I heard
that I should wait until the Fall when temps begin to decline a little
bit. If i were to plant it now, the high summer heat would prevent the
tree from growing at its full potential during this early crucial
Is it OK for me to do it this week or should I wait until late
Avg. temps are: May (86), June (91), July (94), Aug (94), Sept (90),
Wait until October. The soil will still be quite warm, encouraging root
growth. The air will begin to cool, reducing water stress.
Where I live, October and early November are the prime planting months
for trees and shrubs. But bare root items are not planted until January
