Transplanting an Indian Hawthorne

Zone 78612 | Anonymous added on June 13, 2017 | Answered

We have a mature Indian Hawthorne (planted by previous owners) too close to our back patio and taking up perfect morning garden space. What is our best approach to transplanting? When? And how much can we prune it to make it easier to move? We have several lovely options for relocation. Thank you

The best time for pruning is immediately after flowering and before new buds start forming. This article will walk you through how:

It's a hardy plant, so you can transplant it any time when the temperatures will be steady and not extreme (give it plenty of water until it re-establishes) -- early fall or late spring should be fine, try not to transplant it in the midst of severe summer heat.
