Pruning Shears
Necessary if you need to trim any overgrown roots or branches before transplanting.
Gardening Gloves

Watering Can

Gardening Fork

How Do You Remove Japanese Persimmon from the Soil?
From Ground: To begin, thoroughly water the japanese persimmon plant to dampen and loosen the soil. Use a spade or shovel to carefully dig a wide trench around the plant, ensuring the root ball remains intact. Be gentle and patient when working the spade under the root ball to lift the plant out of the ground.
From Pot: Start by watering the japanese persimmon plant. Tip the pot sideways gently and while supporting the plant base, tap the edge of the pot on a hard surface. This action should slide the plant out along with its root ball. If the plant is stuck, you may have to cut the pot away.
From Seedling Tray: Gently grab the japanese persimmon by its leaves, not the stem, and tug it upwards. The seedling should come out with its roots and some soil attached. Handle it carefully as seedlings are a lot more fragile.

Step3 Backfilling
Slowly backfill the hole with soil, patting gently around the root ball to remove any air pockets.
Step4 Watering
Immediately after transplanting, water thoroughly. This first watering is crucial as it allows the soil to settle and reduces transplant shock.
