Elderberry

I have two young elderberry bushes, mostly twiggy and leafy. They MUST be relocated; I have a small yard, no space there. Small front garden gets full sun depending on where a plant is placed, but parts of it are shade until late in the day. Can these bushes be used for a hedge in a mostly sun spot? Space available is about 2 feet wide by about 4 feet long for a small hedge-row. They currently get lots of sun with little shade and I’m concerned that a transplant will kill them. I’ll amend new soil to suit. What do you think?

Transplant now, getting as much of the rootball as possible, or wait until fall. These articles will help:
