Hi,

if you look at this picture in the top left corner, i have a cammelia (adolphe audusson) and a sorbaria sem. these are not particularly ideally placed, as that section of the garden needs a bit of overhauling - and i'd like to move them (preferably without killing or damaging them!!).

what's the safest way to go about doing this? do i need to prune them both first, prior to moving? it's not a task im particularly looking forward to doing but needs must ..

dj, they are fairly small, so lifting them won't be difficult, just make sure you get well round the root ball and prepare your planting holes first so they aren't out of the ground for long, especially as we are due for a cold spell. Give them a good mulch afterwards to give some protection from the frost.

Oh and don't prune them, no need.
