I have relocated a conifer which is approx 3ft tall, dont knowhow old as a dwarf conifer it is now in full sun in a central display bed has been there for about 6 weeks and is going brown, have fed and watered it, planted it into good compost will it come back or have I lost it



Conifers don't like being moved at the best of times but to move it at this time of year is asking for trouble.

If it's going brown then i would say that it was on the way out. Sorry.

Unfortunately I have to agree with Badfish on this one.

A lot of it is common sense Tercol, for example don't move things in late spring or summer as it will stress the plant/shrub/tree and it will also need a lot more water. Until the GCs appeared and folk wanted to buy plants i flower to put in their gardens all perennials were planted in September/October to allow them to establish overwinter an flower the following spring. Badfish know his plants too you know!
