relocating bushes

hello:

I am a first time home owner and I recently removed a tree from the front of the home. There are bushes around where the tree was but now, without the tree, there is an open spot.

Is there a way I can dig up and relocate some bushes to fill in the spot? These are some mature bushes, would it be worth trying to dig them up?

thanks

Moving shrubs is not so difficult. You can probably do it anytime, but some times are better for different plants. The larger the plant, the greater the task. Essentially, the more of the intact root ball you can move, the better it for the plant. They need watering and watching afterwards.

I moved a Rose of Sharon that is ten feet tall this spring. The younger the plant, the more resiliant they seem to be. I would not let that stop you.

Here are some informative sites for your review.
