I understand that the best month to trim and shape holly trees is April. I also understand that it is the best month to transplant holly trees. I live in northeast Baltimore county and it's been about ten degrees cooler than our norm. I'd like to trim and shape a holly tree, and transplant two more. I was hoping to do it this weekend, but I'm concerned that it might be too cold. (Some forecasts even call for an inch of snow!) Am I being too cautious if I wait or too hasty if I go ahead and get the jobs done?
You can go ahead and prune and transplant your hollies this weekend (assuming it's not too cold outside for you to do it!)
