Hibiscus transplantation?

So as above do they cope moving and when is best to move them. We have 3 (white/blue/pink) all in the wrong place in the garden. I have currently cut the back from the 2m long branches to more of a manageable bush size already over the last weeks.

    I moved one in the Spring, it’s grown on very well. I would think now would be ok, take a big rootball it won’t know it’s been moved.

    I've moved one today. The roots weren't as long or heavy as i expected. It moved easily so fingers crossed and TLC for a while. Good luck with yours.
  • Now moved it. As you say the root ball was small and compact and they were fine roots also. So some coffee grounds and good compost should ease it in along with the nice rain we have had.
