will moving a 3 year old hardy fuchsia in spring, do any harm?

Asked from the GoYpedia fuchsias page



No, as long as you keep the rootball intact and don't break too many major roots, it'll be fine - water well in its new position after planting though. I'd be inclined to do it as quickly as possible, before major growth starts, so now, really.

I moved one yesterday into a bigger hole with compost added. It was still dormant so I am hopin it wont have noticed.

To Bamboo- Thanks for the great imformation. I was reading somewhere that hardy fuchsias hate being moved. It is now being squeezed out by larger and permanent shrubs! I will attempt to move it this week-will keep in touch and let you know how things go! Thanks again.
