replant rhododendron

Anonymous added on August 19, 2015 | Answered

I'm not much of a gardener but I have a gardening related question. I have a rhododendron that is root-bound in an 18-in pot. It is clinging to dear life. I would like to replant it so that it could regain its health. The question is, should I do it now (mid-August) or next spring? As far as technique, I thought I would just dig a hole, line the hole with rhododendron food, cut the pot vertically in a few places to get it off, move the rhododendron in the hole, cover up and water it well. Any advice would be appreciated.

You could actually transplant the shrub in fall rather than waiting until spring.
