Transplanting Shrubs In Summer
Shrubs are the garden friends you’ve always dreamed of. Ever reliable, they ask little and give endlessly. There are a few tips to transplanting shrubs in summer. Here are some of them. Decide new location of shrub, keeping in mind sunlight, soil drainage and protection from elements to insure most successful results. Remember: the plant must adapt slowly to harsh changes in location in order to survive a move. Test soil pH, if desired, to ensure shrub will thrive in correct environment. Dig the hole in the new location that is approximately twice the size of shrub root system. Extra space allows roots to “feel” their way comfortably in their new habitat. Put a generous amount of water in the newly dug hole before placing shrub inside. Carefully dig out the shrub you wish to move, taking special care of root system and stalks. Take some of the soil with shrub to new location.
Place the shrubs and soil in the hole. Fill in spaces with fresh potting soil, carefully patting down the soil to maintain stability. If necessary, stake the shrub until its roots take hold. Water generously. If desired, place water stakes in the ground, carefully avoiding damage to the roots. Keep the ground sufficiently moist to avoid drying out, but don’t soak ground, which might cause root rot.
