    My husband was complaining that my ultra dwarf peach and nectarine trees were blocking the view of the house and also the sun when he sits out there. So I moved them.

    I meant to raise the planters on bricks or feet when I planted them but didn't do it. There were roots already going down into the ground and we had to cut those off. The trees look a little droopy because of shock.

    Do you think they will make it? Roots were bigger than what I was hoping.

    Time will tell. Those are some pretty big roots, but I'm going to guess and say they'll survive.

    I had a few evergreen trees in containers and every other year I would pull them from the pot and root prune around the edges and the bottom by 2 or 3 inches, then place back in container and add new soil to what was taken with the roots.

    Cut back some of the branches to relieve the stress. It looks like it needs pruning anyway. Put them in the shade until they get settled and of course water. Maybe mist the leaves every so often.

    I think catjac has the right idea, I also think they will survive.

    Haha Mary! I'm glad you watered them....

    You changed your avatar! The boats are nice, but I liked the cute one of you and your husband.

    Cat, I do my summer pruning on my fruit trees on the summer solstice. They just grew right back. I did trim about 4 inches so that you could see the ones in the back.

    I normally water on Fridays but decided not to water the trees since they have already produced their fruits. I was going to water them every week and a half. I looked at my lime tree and noticed it needed watering so I watered only that one. Didn't really look at the leaves of these 2 trees. I think they just needed water.

    The fruit is just ok. Nothing to rave about. They really need hotter weather but I decided to plant them anyway. If they don't survive there's more trees where they came from. :p
