Flowering Almond Transplant
I have a flowering almond on the south side of our house. It's doing well, but I need to move it, as we need the space it's in. What's the best way to move it or transplant some of the suckers?

Get up as much of the tree roots and surrounding soil as possible and transplant into a suitable area. The key is to successful transplanting is to do your best to keep the plant from going into shock. This article will help you with that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/learn-how-to-avoid-and-repair-transplant-shock-in-plants.htm You may also want to prune the tree back some after moving as this will reduce the amount of foliage the damaged roots (all plants get damaged roots when moved) will have to deal with.
