Betula utilis Moonbeam
My white stemmed birch, B. utilis Moonbeam, which was planted in Autumn 2014 could do with a move to a new spot in the garden. The area in front of it was the only practical spot to site the greenhouse. It would be a shame to have it stuck behind the greenhouse where I won't really be able to enjoy seeing it.
How much of a risk would it be to move? Is the root ball likely to be so large that it turns into a 2 person job? I will have a window to move it next weekend if that is the case or might that be a bit too early? Do I need to be mindful of a long tap root or anything like that? I worry that once moved it could turn frosty and then watering it may be an issue.
Is there anything else I should be mindful of when transplanting my tree? All advice gratefully received.
