The Q&A Archives: Transplanting Quince

Question: We have planted a quince shrub too close to a fence and we would like to know when is the best time to transplant.

Answer: Most shrubs and trees transplant best in the fall or spring months when the weather is not too intense and the ground is full of moisture. Dig a hole large enough to accommodate the roots, backfill a bit to raise the center of the hole so you can spread the roots out naturally, and make sure the final position will be at the same level as it was growing in its former location. Then water your plant well, and be sure to apply about one-inch of water per week until the fall rains can take over. Your quince should make the transition without any problems at all.
