Q.Is It Ok To Cut Into Raphiolepsis Roots That Are Growing In My Flower Bed?

Zone San Diego 92103 | Anonymous added on August 14, 2021 | Answered

This hedge is probably 20+ years old. Healthy and blooms, however I think the roots are all in the flower bed in front as nothing grows well there. Can I chop off some roots? Or will I kill it? Thank you

It's best not to cut any roots, especially in old plantings. The stress could send them into a decline.

Can you relocate the flower bed?
