  • All the garden books, advice sites say shrubs should be transplanted in Autumn or Winter. I have moved loads of shrubs around in Spring and Summer (never in winter) and not lost one yet! Why dont they tell people this when they ask?

  • Can I move a wintersweet now? was planted in wrong position
