Moving plants


I have a little lovEly pittosporum but it's grown loads this year and is coving some other plants so I want to move it. When's the best time to move this plant. I also have another but that hasnt taken well at all and not grown one bit, any advice on where they should go or what they like.

Thanks, angela









  • The one that's doing really well has been there for about 18 months and it's about    1.2 m high. The other one I moved this spring as it had been in a position for a year and hardly has any foliage on it so I moved it and nit done any better. My garden is South facing. 

  • That sounds like a good plan. Can I move and chop them back now or wait until spring??

    Being next to a Rhodie might be the issue with the one that's not doing well, Angela.

    I'd move that somewhere else to give it some room. image

    Pittosporum are lovely looking plants though image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
