Transplanting Hawthorn shrubs should take place in spring and they are happy in any well draining soil, full sun location.

It is best to root prune established shrubs 3 months ahead of time. Root pruning is done by taking a sharp shovel and digging down 8 inches down and in a diameter at least 24 inches around the base of the plant. This cuts off the long roots that won't travel with the plant and encourage small roots to form.
