Can anyone tell me if it's ok to move a large fatsia now that has out grown it's present spot in the garden to some where more open. Thanks, P
I've moved them before Paul - prune it back a bit so that the roots don't struggle and get as big a rootball on it as you can. Keep an eye on it re the weather etc until it's established.
Agree with FG, now is a good time. Is the Fatsia outside already? It would be careful in putting it outside now if it has been inside for years.
It is outside and dominating everything around it! So it has to move. Thanks to both. PCS.
I have recently bought a small fatsia and planted it in the ground in a shaded area. I want it to fill a gap between a fence and small tree. It's looking very healthy at present and I wonder if there is any advice, dos or dont's anyone can pass on. I bought it in a sale and there was no advice label on it.
They're pretty trouble free in my experience break. They drop some lower leaves - as with all evergreens - and you can prune out a branch/stem her and there if needed to keep it fitting the space you have. Mine often get an extra feed because there's usually something 'floral' growing nearby but as long as they have a general feed ( I use blood, fish and bone) each spring that's about it!
Thanks for that info Fairygirl and I'm pleased it's not going to need continual care.
