Laurel removal

Hi all,

I am new to the gardening business but am trying very hard to make my garden look welcoming. I have 2 reasonably small Laurels that were planted around 4 weeks ago, I'm wanting to move them along the fence line a little, is it possible to dig them up and replant them? will they survive?

thanks everyone

    Yes, but you'll need to do it soon and make sure they don't go thirsty for the rest of this summer.  Water them well and leave to soak for an hour or so and then dig up with as much root and surrounding soil as you can.  Re-plant at the same depth and water well.   Maybe give a mulch of chipped bark to retain moisture round their roots.
