We've a red robin which has swiftly outgrown its current location and so requires moving to an alternative more suitable location that I've identified. Is there a good time or more importantly a bad time of the year for this task ?

Many thanks for any advice in this line of enquiry.

It's always best to move plants when they are dormant, so late autumn would be best. Summer is the worst time as keeping leaves with damaged roots strains the plant.

Alternative you could prune the shrub and keep it in it's present position.

i have moved many plants this time year, as long as you water well and reduce some of the foliage
