We have a large Pinneapple Guava that we want to move. When is the best time of the year to move it and if done right will it survive well? It is about 7 ft high and 6 feet wide with many branches

November is a good time as the weather has cooled and the plant will have the most time to establish before the onset of the next summer. Dig as much of the roots as you can, wider is better than deeper. Place a tarp beneath the plant and drag it to the new location or use the 4 corners to lift it and carry it. Set it at the same depth is was previously growing and water it in well firming soil in around the roots. Don't fertilize until the following spring.
