When is best time to move two large choisya

Posted: 10/11/2016 at 15:11

March/ April might be better.

I have moved a large choisya but only in the sense that I dug it up and moved it away (towards a shredder). The roots are enormous and thick and I doubt if mine would have survived the move because the fine feeding roots were lost, being at some distance from the trunk. Yours may not be that big. They're very quick growing and you'd soon have a good plant if you had to start again. Check for layering first, as Verdun suggests, they're very good at that. Check all the ground level branches with a little tug and see if any are fixed.

Are they what the flint knappers open up to build those lovely Norfolk houses?

I've seen them here a few times over 25 years but not often. They're so tiny though, I could be missing them. When I have seen them it's the song that's drawn my attention.

Great photo

I don't have many oaklets but I'd be living in an ash/field maple/sycamore forest if I didn't keep on top of them

I reckon to go just below ground level. It probably doesn't do the loppers much good to be cutting in soil but it gets rid of the trees.
