Can I move a cotinus tree?
Northamptonshire, United Kingdom
We have a cotinus in our garden (in the UK) that's 9 years old, grown from a small plant my husband's rather attached to. We're moving house some time in the autumn/winter and he'd like to take it with us.
If we dug it up do you think it would survive the move? Is it a kind of tree that would need a tree surgeon to do it in order to ensure it survives?
If it is safe to move ourselves is there anything particular we should do to it beforehand or while being moved?
Many thanks in advance.
