transplanting peonies and wisteria plants
Being new, both to gardening and to this forum, I'm hoping for advice on how best to transplant a couple of well-established peony plants and two young (2-year-old) wisteria plants. We're putting in a patio and the plants around the existing deck have got to be moved.
I'm planning to put the wisteria on the side of an old shed, hoping it will grow up and over the top of that small building -- they'll get partial shade in that spot, so I hope that's ok. The peonies will go into an existing flowerbed that gets full sun.
Is now the right time to transplant? The wisteria plants still look dormant, but the peony plants are just beginning to pop up out of the soil.
How big a hole should I dig relative to the root ball, and should I mix fertilizer or anything into the new soil?
