Q.

andromeda (small size – grows to about 5 feet)

Zone zone 6 | denvillduo added on July 17, 2015 | Answered

It was moved twice as a result of construction in its area. Now it has only sparse new growth on it. I was wondering if it might help if we cut it down at end of season. I'm not ready to give up on it yet.

Do little to the plant except make sure it is watered well.
Keep the soil moist while it settles into it's new location.
2 to 3 inches of hardwood mulch will help it retain it's moisture.

In the spring you can clean up any dead plant material and fertilize it.
Here is a link to refresh you on the care.
Good luck.
