Spirea Shrub


Pgutierrez added on May 14, 2016 | Answered

Can a spirea shrub be transplanted? It's not fully mature yet and would like to plant it elsewhere. I have the perfect spot for it and not happy where it's planted now.

Whenever possible transplant a Spirea in late winter or early spring, before the new growth starts.
It can be done now, with a bit more care. Water the shrub well in the couple of days prior to digging.
Tie up the branches to keep them from breaking.
Make sure you dig the hole twice as wide as the root ball and plant it at the same depth.
Water well the first few weeks and the a bit less through the summer.
