Retep, what part of the country are you in? That will have a big effect on when you repot it.

So it is Scottish. Blind as a bat, and I don't know the answer to the question either...but many evergreens are best repotted or moved in the spring. Aucuba shouldn't be overwatered in the winter.

Here in the desert, we repot them in the fall, because they get so stressed in the summer. The same is probably also true in southern California, southern New Mexico, the lower Rio Grande valley, and Florida. Spring might be better for Retep, if he gardens in a cooler climate. Pruning should normally be in early spring, though if a lot of soil falls off the roots in repotting, it might be good to prune some to reduce the shock.
