Moving established Shrubs in Garden


By Bobs

I want to reposition the following Shrubs:-
A) Azalea B) Hebe C) Hydrangea
When can these be moved?



Move them from October onwards. Make a hole big enough to receive them, fill in firmly with plenty of compost, give them a trim of any dead wood and feed in March.

I moved a few shrubs yesterday Bobs, I know it is a bit early , but needed to get the area tidied up. The ones I moved were Hebe, Escallonia, a Cordyline and Lavender. Hopefully they'll be okay, I think if they're well watered, all should be well......:o)

The end of the year is probably the best time to move these shrubs. Get them settled in before the winter really starts and they will be ready to get going in the spring.
