Replanting cistus and spartium
We have a steep, stony bank that we planted ten years ago with cistus, spartium, cytisus etc. It has been lovely but many of the bushes are now past their best and need to be replaced. Digging new planting holes is very hard work (needs a pick-axe rather than a spade!) so I would like to replant in the same holes that the old plants are going to be removed from. I have plenty of garden compost that I can use to fill the holes and give the new plants a good start.
Is this going to be OK, or is there any problem with re-planting the same shrub in the same spot (as with roses)?
