I have a forsythia bush in my garden but I am having some work done & it needs to be moved, can I safely move it this time of year



Hello and welcome to Goy Jr1 I am sure temp if you dug it up and put elsewhere in garden and kept well watered or in a pot and well watered until your work is all done it should be fine.

But see what others say.

If you do that take a good rootball and prune back the top to relieve it of too much work, they seem a tolerant shrub to cutting back then carry on as Scotkat recommends

you could try taking cuttings from the prunings, they seem to take quite easily

Thank you both, I will try that. Really don't want to lose it as its a lovely healthy bush. I will let you know what happens. Fingers crossed.
