Answer: A shrub that has been in the ground for three years will have a well-established root system but you should be able to move it without too much trauma if you first wet the ground thoroughly to help the root mass remain as much intact as possible, start your digging at the dripline of the shrub, and replant quickly so the roots are not exposed to air and sunshine for any length of time. Fall is the best time to move your chaste tree. Cooler temperatures and natural rainfall will help it become re-established before growth begins in the spring. Best wishes with the move!
