I have 2 six-seven foot hibiscus bushes (white with red centers) that I want to move away from my house. Is it ok to do it now and how should I do it. Thank you.

RE: transplanting

Patty, first, it's important there's no chance of snow or freezing temps.
You're going to have a lot of digging to do..(S) Dig around hibs for easier lifting. Try digging as many of the roots as possible. Some will break and Hibs will be stressed afterwards..
Do you know where you're going to relocate? This should be done before removing hibs. Dig 2 big holes. If possible, add new soil mixed w/old. Cover roots w/soil, the same height or a little more that covered roots originally. Water thoroughly..
If you use Superthrive, add 10 drops per gallon of water..Contine w/ST once a month.Good luck, Toni
