Here in Western Washington we have mild winters. I have noticed that laurel
that I put in larger pots in the fall, will have filled out the pot, with
roots, by spring - so I conclude that the roots grow through the winter.
I have just transplanted some 15' tall Leyland Cypress and would like the
roots to recover by next summer. I lost some from a spring transplanting,
last summer, and conclude that the survival chances are far better when done
in November, as they have the whole winter to grow new roots. Question:
What can I feed the roots, during the winter that might help them along? B1
stimulator or is that not to be done in the late fall? I assume that
nitrogen is not to be given. How about phosphorous?
