Moving shrubs from frozen ground

Drakens(5a)March 19, 2005

I am having a fence put in next week and I have to remove some bushes from the area that I'd like to keep but the ground is frozen still. Is there any way to do this easily? I was wondering if warm water would loosen it up enough, but would that also hurt the plant?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Could you put some black plastic, or clear plastic over it lite a tent, then fill some barrels and buckets with hot water, and create a microclimate?
