I have a lemon tree growing in my shade house (long story), that is doing extremely well, but I need to move it outdoors as it will simply run out of room. It is probably 1 1/2 metres tall, how am I best to go about this without killing it?

You can do it at any time of year, but autumn/winter is probably better as the plant will be more dormant, and the leaves won’t suffer so much from sunburn being put outside in the heat of summer. You are best to water it thoroughly before hand and then dig it out with a very large rootball. Make sure that the new hole is ready beforehand with plenty of compost added. Plant it again as carefully as you can, and water it thoroughly as well. Keep it moist for a week or so, but don’t flood it. You could also trim the top growth back a bit too. If possible, protect it from the sun for the first few weeks- particularly in the heat of the day.
