Ask a Pro Q&A: Potted Plants

Welcome to another installment of Ask a Pro! We’ll talk to Dream Team member and outdoor design expert Carson Arthur about potted trees and the right time to plant.


Q: Is it now the right time to plant no matter I have to use pots? Can we plant all kind of trees or little plants too? Thanks in advance for your comments.

-Cony E.

A: Plants in pots are a tricky subject because each climate is very different. Most times, the answer is yes. This time of year is great for planting. That said, with temperature and light levels both dropping, extra care must be taken to ensure that your plants get what they need. Keep an eye on them and if leaves are yellowing then you may need to make some location changes that are warmer and sunnier.
