Hello! I have a healthy red flowering currant that I'd like to relocate. Does anyone have advice on the when and how of transplanting such a plant? I can't seem to find any info online anywhere. I live in Seattle, WA (Zone 8B).

you transplant trees and shrubs in the fall before dormancy....just dig as much of the root up as you can and plant it like you would any other shrub or tree. Dont remove the soil that is stuck around the roots....it should be a large ball of dirt and roots together

You can transplant any time after the leaves fall....or during dormancy. These are native plants here and adapt easily but transplanting during its winter dormant period will result in the least amount of disruption.
