Hebe Topiaria

I have a Hebe Topiaria (think thats how you spell it) tha I need to move to a different place. It is about 5 years old. When is the best time to move it please?



Well, I might not be the best person to answer this question as every Hebe I touch seems to die on me!!! But the best time to move most things is when they are dormant (ie not growing) in the autumn/winter. Pick a day when the soil is neither frozen nor too wet and try and get as many as the roots as poss with as much soil attached as poss so it gets the minimum of root disturbance.

Thanks very much for that. I'll wait a while yet then.

Autumn is the best time I think. They are not too difficult to move and follow Sid's instructions.
