Q.transplanting small Holly bushes

Zone 07060 | annee added on June 12, 2019 | Answered

4 small Holly bushes have “appeared” in my garden. They are now big enough to transplant as I don’t want them to mature in those places. When is the best time to do this?  thank you

The best time will be in early Spring, or Autumn. Doing so now will likely result in shock.

Be sure to dig pretty far around, as not getting the roots will leave you with two problems. A failed transplant, and the bush regrowing even more vigorously back in the same spot.
