Planting a baby rowan tree

Could you tell me when I can plant a baby Rowan tree which I put into a pot from the bottom of my larger tree?

    Anytime for the Rowan  tree,  they are very tough, they grow wild on the Moors here in very little, very poor soil, they seed in crevises of the rocks.

  • Hi Lynn. 

    Thank you. I shall plant it tomorrow. We've named our original Rowan Twiggy, so we'll have to find another name for this one! Sad or what?!?

     Call it Martin, on TV probably before your time, anyone remember Rowan and Martin.

    Brilliant suggestion Lyn! I love R and M's laugh in. image

    They're very tough as Lyn has said, but they like a fair bit of moisture to do well. They grow readily on rocks and crags on hills too (as well as on moorland and in hedgerows) but they get loads of rain to help them.

    Our 'national tree' up here, really, and they're all looking glorious just now, and have been for many weeks   image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
