Transplanting A Ponytail palm

Hey all,

New @ this so bear with me....I have a ponytail palm tree approximately 8 feet tall planted in the ground in Daytona Beach. I want to dig it up and move it to a different location with slightly colder weather(more inland)but still in Florida. Is this possible and if so, when is the best time to do it? Any advise will help.

Thank You,
Adgillman

Hi Adgillman,


Welcome to The Helpful Gardener. Sorry it's taken so long to get to your post, but these plants are only hardy to zone 10. What is the hardiness zone you want to move it to?

Well, you are taking a chance but now would be a good time before the weather gets too hot and stresses the tree. It's going to be very heavy at that size so you'll need help with it. I'm thinking you will hire a pro to do dig it up and replant it.
