Transplanting camellia

newbieshelley(Washington D.C.)May 7, 2010

I'm not sure if this is the best forum to post in...

Could you please share your best tips for transplanting an eight year old pink camellia bush, and what time of year is best? We will be moving within the year and I want to make sure I am catching all of these plants at the right time and save as many as possible.

I don't want to move them now (to an intermediate location) then again when I move, but I also don't want to get stuck moving at a time of year when I cannot transplant it.

Thanks in advance!

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Transplant the camellia when it's dormant (before it puts out new leaves in the spring.) Keep it shaded and watered after you move it until it gets established. Good luck. Rich
