saturday: dig up tree

treeso this is what we did yesterday. i’ve been planning to move one of our camellias from the back yard to the front yard for ages – it’s right by the garden, behind a trellis. I wanted to make more room for raised beds and compost, and this area is nicely tucked away at the back.

the camellia wasn’t doing great in its existing location and we have another 5 or 6 scattered around, so it was worth the attempt – our front yard is desperately in need of some evergreen foundation plantings at the moment and this is a decent size tree.

I’ve never dug up a tree before, and let me tell you, it takes some digging. thankfully, I had some muscle help out.


i got my husband to “be the tree” to figure out exactly where to plant it in the front. it was dark by the time we finished.

and then there was beer.

beer is good.
