transplanting to larger patio planters - time?

gw409(6)April 15, 2012

hello:

i have had a 3 foot weeping white pine in a large container for 2 years, and a 4 foot miss kim lilac purchased b&b and planted in the garden 2 years ago.

i wish to transplant both of them to large planters to remain as patio plants. when would be the best time to do this? i know it should be done before full growth starts but because the weather here in the north east has been unusually warm growth has started (especially on the lilac)

i would rather not wait until fall.

any advice would be appreciated

thanks
