need to transplant azalea (pics included)
Hi! We are replacing the steps for our porch and the azalea has to be moved. I don't think this is the best time of year to do it, but it still has to go. I've started digging around it, as I figure I should take it out to see how big the rootball is before digging a new hole for it. After working at it for a while, it isn't budging at all, so my question is: How deep can I expect the roots to go? I'm including pics so you can see how big it is and perhaps make an estimate.
Also, I don't have a great spot for it (in fact, I don't think it's been in a great spot anyway). No high canopy of trees to filter sunlight. I do have morning sun or afternoon sun. Any ideas which might be better?
Thanks so much!
