Can I move a philidelphus

suffolk, United Kingdom Gb

Hello I have two mock oranges bushes that have been in for nearly 18 months. Both flower well but it is becoming apparent that I only needed one of them. Can I move them in the winter ?



I would say wait until they are dormant, thats the same with most plants im told.
late autumn when they have decided enough growing for the year

Don't move it in winter as the ground would be too cold. Late October/early November is ideal, the plant will be dormant but the soil still warm(ish).
If you can't do it then you will probably need to wait until early spring when the ground starts warming up again..
I moved one in late October last year and it has flourished since
