moving an established photinia

Anonymous added on July 19, 2015 | Answered

I have a photinia which has been in the ground about 8 yrs but it has only grown to 5 ft, 6 inches in height and spread about 6 ft. Now the middle is wilting, and I want to know if it would be ok to dig it up and move it to a better site.

Spring is the best time to move them, shortly followed by fall. They may experience transplant shock. This article will help you avoid that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/learn-how-to-avoid-and-repair-transplant-shock-in-plants.htm
