Original Message here's what I'd do
I'd cut them back to at least 1/3 since
in the process of moving them you
probably will be destroying some of the
roots and they would need the top growth
cut back to accomadate that loss. If
possible get the soil prepared before
the move by adding large volumes of
organic matter and, my preference, sheep
manure (2,2,1). Rock phosphate or
greensand probably wouldn't hurt either
but a soil test would be in order to
determine what is there and what else
may be needed.
