hello, I have a lovely Weigela that has been in the same place for quite a number of years now. it used to get full sun but since we built my new shed, it needs to be moved to another part of the garden. I hard pruned about 2 years ago and last year (before new shed) it put on a lot of new top growth and flowered as well. the new growth is quite splindly because it grew from the pruned older branches.
my question is this -- if I cut down some of the spindly branches so that we can dig it out without getting whipped by them, and re-plant it, will the shrub survive ???
