How should I transplant a large Rose of Sharon bush?


Answer by  NikkiG92 (38)

Transplant any large shrub in late winter/early spring when it is dormant. Dig around the roots keeping the rootball as intact as possible. Dig the new hole 2 times larger than the rootball, place plant in the hole and backfill mixing in a slow release fertilizer. Water well.

Cool weather is the time to transplant. Prepare area, keeping in mind the bush can grow from 8'-12' tall and have a spread between 6'-10'. Dig rootball large as possible and place in prepared area. Cover throughly with soil, setting bush a few inches higher to allow for settling. Water.

Dig around the plant and pull up the dirt WITH the roots so you have a sizable hole in the ground. Wrap the dirt in cloth and replant elsewhere.

Dig up the bush, place it in water and let it sit for a day. When transplanting, allow room for growth. Dig a hole deep enough for plant size and add water. Place the plant in the hole, compacting the mud around the root. Fill up the hole until the dirt is 3 to 6 inches above the surface. Water.

Rose of sharon are very delicate to transplant I did mine last spring and almost lost it make sure the soil is nice and warm then make sure when you dig it up you take a good amount of the dirt it has been in and transplant it.

When transplanting the best time to do this is when the plant is dormant, make sure there is plenty of soil around the roots.

Transplant the plants in the direction which you desire. If you want the seeds to grow diagonally, then transplant them accordingly. Then also, water in a strict pattern and let them be.

You should begin by digging up your Rose of Sharon and placing bush in water and let sit for a day. Dig hole big enough for root ball and plant.


Answer by  vijayan (63)

Rose of Sharon shrubs are very adaptable and transplanting has to be done while they are young because of their root system. Cooler weather is the best condition to transplant.

Wait til the fall or after the plant has flowered. Dig a new hole and dig out the bush and move root and all to the new area.
