I’m a beginner and I’m afraid I didn’t think this through. I have a big farm scene with barn, silo, etc. the problem is it is too big to move and I don’t have any sun on the back porch and all the sun is on the front porch. I have a big yellow tree I think a spruce. Should I dig it up and pot until nex year?
Hi Elizabeth. I can only vouch for the one tree that you got from https://www.TwoGreenThumbs.com – that Jean’s Dilly Spruce needs to stay as cold as it can in Florida. Unfortunately, I can’t comment on the rest of the plants – I don’t know what they are nor the quality of them. Email me a photo so I can give you a better answer. Find it through the link – if I leave it here I get too much spam.
Ok I can do that tomorrow. My littlt dilly spruce is in a pot awaiting my Christmas present but is shedding some.- I think it is a lemon spruce and it’s beautiful which is what I don’t want to lose it cases it needs lots of light.
Hi Janit, it seems I don’t know how to send a picture so I went to your website and found it. It ‘ts a Wilma Goldencrest Monterey. Mine has gotten quite big. I don’t think I got it from you as I just recently found your website.°I am not worried about cold but lack of light.
Missed this, Elizabeth, apologies! Yes, I would go ahead and move it to a sunnier location. It needs full sun – or at least 6 hours of sun.
