Moving a twisty hazel
Hello helpful people!
About 4 years ago I planted a twisty hazel in the middle of a bed. Now it's grown and I realise it's in the wrong place - in summer it blocks out the view of half the border it's in - and we only really have that one border.
So, I'm thinking of moving it....it's now about 6' high and 6' wide and its widest and tallest parts. Our soil is 18" of ok ish clay / loam(?) and then impenetrable, solid clay.... I plan to move it about two metres back from where it is.
Does this way madness lie? Is the clay going to make it too hard to get it out with enough roots to survive in its new home? Or should I chalk it up to experience and just get something else to out in the new place.
