Must move large gardenia in June (help!)
I have discovered a mature gardenia plant in an empty lot near my house that is soon to be mostly cleared and developed (some trees will be saved, but the rest goes). The construction is to begin soon, and so I wish to move this plant, despite it being June in Georgia. Fortunately, it has been unusually cool and rainy, so conditions are more welcoming than in the past. However, I know nothing about what is the best way to go about digging up a four foot high gardenia (how wide / deep of an area to dig, etc.). Any suggestions are very much welcomed!
