I have a beautiful white fuschia growing in the wrong place.Is it possible to move it to a better site without doing too much damage to it ? I would appreciate any advice
How big is it?
It's roughly 3ft high
It's roughly 3ft high. Probably should have been pruned but it didn't happen.
Hi Delores2 get as much of the root ball as you can ,and dig a similar hole as the root ball in the right place sprinkle some general fertiliser and back fill removing any air pockets as you go ,and be careful of your back it will be quite heavy .
Hi Clogherhead,thanks for adcice. Should I cut it back before moving or move it as it is ?.
I would cut it back to 3 -4 in from the base new shoots will appear through out the year
Thanks for your help. I will do it tomorrow.
Sorry forgot to mention give it lots of water to settle it in and then every other day
Thanks again. Will do
It will be fine being moved at this time of year. I don't prune mine till early spring anyway when I cut them right down.
