Transplanting (and splitting) annabelle and limelight
First time poster in hydrangea forum... I have an annabelle in my back yard (picture attached). I love it but its located behind a huge tree so you can never see it. I also have three dogs and I'm afraid they're going to trample it. Obviously, moving the whole thing would be quite the task (its about 4 feet wide) so can I "split" off a section? How would you recommend going about this?
I also have a 'limelight' in front I bought from lowes or something last fall, on sale. Its got some leaves coming in. I'm going to redo some of the front yard and I'm wondering if its too late to try to transplant that to maybe a container for this summer and move it back to the ground in the fall. Thoughts?
Any advise would be much appreciated.
