Re: Transplanting a Burning Bush

From: Rebecca Green
Date: 05 Dec 2003


Dig up as much as the root as possible. Keep as much of the soil around the root as possible. Lay out a large piece of burlap. Do not use synthetic burlap or chemically treated burlap, only burlap made of natural fibers. Once the bush is dug out of the ground set the root ball on the burlap. Tie the burlap around the rootball. At the new location dig the hole wider than the root ball, but not deeper. Set the plant, still wrapped up in burlap, in the hole. Remove (cut away) any burlap that is around the trunk. Leave the roots tied up in the burlap. The burlap will decay away in about a year. Fill the hole with soil and water.
