when would be the best time to move agiant coryline

shropshire, United Kingdom Gb

i have a cordyline that is blocking the letterbox the post man is complaining i need to move it but when is the best time????



Im saying probably around now as it may be ready to go dormant, just depends just how cold it isn in your area...
I maybe wrong though I dont know much about these so it maybe different to other shrubs

No, you're right Mookins but Rocket... if its very large, make sure you dig up a large rootball around the plant and try to keep the long spreading roots, if there are any, intact as far as possible. When you replant, dig a hole deep enough and wide enough to accommodate the roots WITHOUT bending them round to get them in the hole. Water thoroughly once you've moved it (before if your ground is dry too).
