Kentucky Coffee Tree Seedlings Transplanted to Larger Pots - August 2022
I started with just ONE set of the trees to ensure that they can handle the division of roots. I figured there were two routes here: divide the clumps. Or, simply transplant the double seedling and cut off/prune down the weaker of the two.
Here, below, is the first of those two divided and placed in their newer, larger homes:
My plan is to try to baby these for the next few weeks and see how they do with transplant shock. If they are fine, I'll divide the rest of them into these larger, 1# pots this Fall and then think about how I can best overwinter them (in the ground again, I'm thinking) as they continue to grow. Best case, I'll end up with 11 small 1# seedlings that I can continue to nurse here as a seasonal project.
