    Moving it when dormant is certainly the ideal Chrissy. Think I'd opt for autumn as the damper weather but warmer soil  will make it easier to establish. It's certainly better here - takes too long for ground to warm up in spring.

    I'd still be inclined to prune back a bit though, but if you can prepare the ground well and take a really big rootball, you might find it's not necessary. image

    And somewhere on the hill
    Inside the past we hear the bells
    Catching only parts of thoughts
    And fragments of ourselves
    Till we begin
    Again

    It's a lovely shrub Chrissie. I was considering it for a spot in my boundary too, but I'm opting for a tinus because I need an evergreen for screening and for filtering the wind that batters through the garden.

    Good luck with moving it  image

    Agree with Fairy. Move after leaf drop. 

    Time slide, place to hide, nudge reality
    Foresight, minds wide, magic imagery, oh-ho...
