Casuarina dig

Postby Shagga » July 17th, 2017, 3:01 pm

Hi all

Here goes my first new topic. Ive found a Casaurina I'd like to dig and was wondering if it would be ok to do it now or it would be better to wait till the weather warms up? Any tips on digging, after care etc would be greatly appreciated as it will be my first time collecting a tree like this.

Cheers

Chris.

If you can leave it where it is until Summer, do so.

If you need to remove it because it's going to be bulldozed, do that and keep it in a warm spot.

Rory posted an extensive casaurina thread last week, if you do a search you should find it. Plenty of helpful info on caring for them in there and elsewhere.

Good luck.

I thought that would be the case...no threat of bulldozers so I'll wait and I'll check out Rory's post tonight.
Thanks for the reply mate,
