Mature shrubs for adoption (Gaithersburg)

Posted by alina_1 (My Page) on

I will have to remove some shrubs from my garden this fall. They are perfectly healthy. I have Barberry shrubs that are about 2.5-3' tall. Probably, 'Rose Glow', but I am not sure. I also have some Yews. They are 3-4' tall. Apparently, they are too large for transplanting, but you want to try they are yours.
If anyone interested, please let me know. I also can post pictures. I live in Gaithersburg, MD (Montgomery County). You can come any time and dig them.
I would hate to throw them away, but I will have no choice if they will not be adopted by someone...

Alina, I'd be happy to take a couple of your barberry shrubs!
If that works for you, and if there are others down this way (Bowie) and south I can dig for them too..

The best time for me is while the kids are in school, but if afternoons/evenings/weekends work best for you, I can do the daddy hand-off.

Hi Lynne,

I emailed you.


RE: Mature shrubs for adoption (Gaithersburg)

I live near Gaithersburg and also have a mature barberry that I want to remove. If you haven't already been in the area to get Alina's, you are welcome to come by my place and get another barberry. Or any other takers. I'd like to remove it soon.
