I am about to move two Bottle Brush bushes, I have had them in the same place for about ten years, does anyone know if the roots go down or spread please.

On plant Callestemon



Thanks to everyone who has welcomed me to GOY.
Thankyou for your comments too.

The roots will go down about 70 cm, maybe deeper in very open, gritty soil, and out about a meter wider than the canopy of the plant.
