After it finished flowering i pruned it and now is about 5 meters tall,I am hoping you can tell me how to dig it up and transplant it some where else as i dont want to loose it,
I live in the far south of Tasmania, any help or information you could give me would be much appreciated.

This can be a BIG problem near dwellings. You should have a certified arborist, or tree service come out to look at it. If there is structural damage, then there will be a very careful procedure to move it without causing extreme damage to both the tree and house.
