When can I transplant azaleas, spireas and boxwoods?
The best time to transplant a Boxwood is in the fall.
Late Winter or early Spring is best to move a Spirea.
If you live in a cold climate, Spring is best for the Azalea.
Warmer climates you can transplant an Azalae late summer to Fall, avoid the hottest part of the Summer.
Here are some articles with more information.
I need to know what a good drawf (no higher than 3') shrub would be in an area that doesn't receive direct sun light and stays slightly wet all the time. I have a space approximately 8-10' long and it is next to my house.
Can you please include your climate zone, and any other information about the temperatures in your area? This can be hard to give advice for without knowing how cold or warm it gets in the area.

We are removing some large shrubs to plant a vegetable garden and I would like to know how much of the roots we need to get out. We have dug out the stumps and I am trying to get the roots but some are very deep. Is getting the stump out enough or do we need to dig five feet down to get the root completely out. I don't want to use a chemical because of the vegetable garden.
If you have the main roots out, leave the rest to compost in place. There are a few aggressive shrubs like Euonymus alatus that might try to make a comeback from lateral roots but it sounds like you have worked hard to prevent that. The small feeder roots are not a problem.
A large project completed by a landscape gardening company has been completed mid January after about 3 months work altogether. Many of our mature well established shrubs were dug up and temporarily planted at least twice. Two of these, which we actually purchased and planted 18 months ago are now dead or dying. Several other established shrubs which were moved also seem on the way out. As we have not paid the final payment yet, can I legally withold a sum to replace the shrubs damaged by not being moved/ replanted carefully enough?.
We cannot give legal advice, and advise that you consult someone that is equipped to handle this situation. I am sorry I cannot help further.
