The Q&A Archives: transplating caryopteris

Question: My caryopteris purchased from you is growing beautifully but i planted near our front door and the bees are driving us crazy. Want to move it to a new location. Should I do it now, or wait until spring?

Answer: This plant is grown as a cutback shrub in your area because it suffers such severe winter damage. For this reason I would wait until late witner to early spring to move it. Be sure to mulch it well later this fall. When you do dig it, take as much of the root ball as possible and cut the plant back quite hard to compensate for lost roots. Good luck with the move!
