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 

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

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.

Thanks Busy-Lizzie
