Hi guys,

I finally have everything I need to repot my container meyer lemon trees, out of their nursery pots and into 16'' pots filled with brand new 5-1-1 mix.

My trees are spending all day on the deck and are having tons of new growth and blooms. The one that was bare is now full of small leaves. Basically, they are finally thriving right now, and I don't want to do anything to mess it up.

My only question is... did I miss the train on that one? Is it now too late in the summer and too hot to repot? I've done a search on the forums and between Al saying you shouldn't repot a nursery tree for a year, others that you need to do it asap, and the ones saying repoting in high summer will stress them too much, I don't know what to do.

These are the temperatures planned for the week.

So what's your verdict, do it now or wait for fall or wait for next spring?

As usual, thank you all for the help and advice. If you guys give me the Go, il repot this week end.
