Moving established Fatsia Japonica

Hi there,

So I may be moving house in the next month or so, and I have two large(ish) Fatsia Japonica that I will want to move with me.  I've had them several years now and they have grown into lovely architectural plants.  

Do these transplant easily?  Is there anything I should do to ensure they survive other than water them.  I'm also thinking of putting them into large pots instead of the ground because the new property has a gravel garden.  Do they thrive in pots?

    How large is 'large(ish)?

  • I recently dug a couple of these out which were about 15yrs old, they had a tap root which went straight down, I gave up at 500mm deep and it was still 50mm dia

    leave it be, buy a new one
