moving a small shrub

vaherbmomMay 4, 2010

I have a small shrub that I would like to move. I think perhaps it's a Deutzia, but not sure. It has recently finished blooming for this year. When is the best time to move it to another place in the garden? Should I wait until fall?

Fall or, preferably spring. If it is Deutzia and is in full leaf, after bloom, it would be best to move it while dormant. Deutzia sometimes dies or "tips" back in the winter here in zone 6A. My vote would be move it next spring, after it has weathered a normal winter.
