|I want to donate a 3rd year Limelight Hydrangea (paniculata) to my church. My plan is to cut it back this fall and dig it up , with most of the rootball in place, any issues with that?

|There's no problem with digging and transplanting this fall, as long as you can keep the roots of the plant from freezing over the winter months. You might dig and pot it up, then sink the pot down into the soil over the winter to help insulate the roots. Then dig the entire pot and transport it to the church when it's time to donate the plant.
