Ixora - Transplanting

Posted by southwestfloridaguy Florida Zone 9 (My Page) on

I have two small in-ground ixora nora grant (red) plants that I need to move to another location in my full-sun garden.
I am assuming that there is a correct and an incorrect time to transplant. Can someone please educate me on the timing. Thanks...

RE: Ixora - Transplanting

the best time in your zone and region is typically in the more dormant season of slow growth and fewer stresses from heat and the need for water. therefore transplant nov-jan. you probably already know this but dig the hole where it is going first, so the roots will not be out to dehydrate. get as much root as you can and dig a wide shallow hole first and move it directly into the new hole. good luck.
