Hi, I’m David Epstein and this is Growing Wisdom. And today, we’re going to move some plants. Since the fall there’s a lot of stuff going on, may be you can hear some leaf blowers in the background. We’re going to move a little rhododendron, a rose bush, and some peonies because this area is going to be a lawn next year and we want to remove these plants, put them away safely. I want to show you how easy it is to move them. We’re pulling out another rose just like what you would do with any tree or shrub. Just dig around, try to lift underneath and keep as much soil as you can on the roots. Sometimes that’s what happens. It’s called bare rooting. It’s okay we just want to get them back on the ground as quickly as possible. All right so normally I would prune the roses back earlier on spring but I’m going to prune them back a little bit earlier just because I want to give them the best chance to live for next year. So I’m just taking them down. And this is what I’m going to put back down the ground and it’s actually an existing rose bush here so I’m thinking in my head is that I want to create this clump of tree rose bushes. So just dig the hole. Plant it as deep as it was. Put the soil back and you’re good to go. All right we’re going to put this rhododendron right here. Eventually this will grow and meet with this dark green yew, but that’s going be several years off. We’ll just dig our hole, in it goes. Seem that it was before. No deeper. Pack the soil down around it and this guy will be good to go. We will also be able to see some early spring color looking up outside the kitchen window, which will be real nice. All right the last thing I’m going to move is this peony. It would like to be moved in the late summer but it’s going to be moved. If you have to move something, you have to move it and just you’re your chances. It should be okay. It’s not just the ideal time of the year. This little white right here, that’s next year’s growth. Just cover the top of this with soil as it was. If you had plant this too deep down it’s not going to come up and not going to flower. Fall is the wonderful time of the year to be moving a lot of trees, shrubs and even some perennials. You always want to check to be sure where there are certain trees, perennials and shrubs that can’t be moved in the fall but for the most part it really is a good time of the year.
