I am getting some Jaboticaba that are in a display pot. One is 7 years and two are I are 4 years.

I want to put them together I into a display.

To assemble the new display they have to be moved, but they do not need root redux/grooming yet.

My hope is that ‘moving’ them with complete root balls will be less stressful and that I can move them now even though it is late in the season for reporting this deciduous variety.

Also, in have no plans to prune, graft, or wire this year.

Thanks kindly in advance.

I would think that moving them would be fine. You have to wait for other opinions though.

Jabuticaba is NOT deciduous.

I am of the opinion that transplanting without rootwork is a bad idea. The only way to improve the rootball is by working it. Transplanting at a time that is not optimal for rootwork should therefor only be done in case of emergency. In my book at least.

Thanks, I was confused about the leaf shedding and said the wrong thing.

So these particular specimen are being delivered in the next 3-5 days and unless there is something unexpected I will leave them in he current pots until coming spring.

Thanks again.

I agree with Leatherback, repotting in the Spring with some rootwork is the way to go.

Thanks for the advice,

Holy Moley noticed between you and leatherback there are over 10,000 posts!!!

I could never get such educated advice locally.

Thankfully,

John.
