Transplanting Mature Azaleas
I am about to begin a home renovation that will require moving 6 mature azaleas. I have read some very helpful posts on the forum about the process for transplanting. I would like to use the azaleas around the foundation of the addition but I won't be able to plant for at least a month. I've thought of 3 options and wanted some guidance -
1. Find out that it's not possible and plant them somewhere else in the yard
2. Plant them in a temporary location for a month and then re-transplant when the foundation is complete.
3. Wrap the root ball in burlap for a month and keep them watered.
4. Something else?
I'm a rookie so please help - thanks!
