I have some Hydrangeas in my back garden and i will like to move them .
Am i able to do this.?

On plant Hydrangea



Yes but you will have to dig up as much soil around the roots as possible to be sure of more success. I would then prune then hard-ish, but you will probably forfeit flowers for this summer. prepare their new home first so that they can be lifted and planted all in one session. you will have to keep an eye on the watering throughout this spring/summer and probably into the autumn. depending on the age of the plants of course.

and welcome to GoY too.
