Move some Redtwig dogwoods now?
I've got 2 elegantisima dogwoods that are in the way and need to be moved now.
I know it's not the right time- it'd be better to wait to fall or spring. Etc. but I plan to do it and I just wonder if people think I should chop them down (like doing a bareroot rose) to move them, or leave their foliage.
They are only about 3 feet tall at this point and have just been in these locations for 1 or 2 years-- so they aren't massive (part of the reason I want to do it now is also that I don't want to let them to have the time to get big- it's their "leap" year (sleep, creep, leap).
I will do it in the evening on a cool day and keep them watered well--- just wonder if anyone thinks I should chop them down??
