Digging the Plant Before digging the plant, tie up the branches as for root.



Shrubs up to 3 feet tall and trees an inch or less in diameter (measured 6 inches above the soil level) can be moved without digging a solid root ball. These and most plants 3 to 4 years old may be moved as bare root transplants. Larger or older plants will need to be dug and transplanted with the root ball intact. Use your best guess for the size -- you can always make adjustments once you have dug up the plant.

Prune off any dead branches, and remove any damaged leaves. With a Spade Shovel or Transplanter, dig around the base off the plant at least 3 inches from the base of the stem - for larger plants start 6 to 10 inches from the bases, going slowly so that you don't damage the root zone. Dig out further if you.

Dig up all trees by hand, making a trench around the outside edge of the canopy and digging down 15 to 24 inches to allow for the major roots. Use a sharp spade to cut minor roots cleanly. Wrap the root ball in damp burlap or other material until you can plant the tree. Before digging the plant, tie up the branches as for root pruning. Mark a branch that faces north so the plant can be properly oriented when planted.

Also, mark the trunk where it meets the soil. When replanting, make sure you plant so that this mark is an inch above the soil line of the planting hole. The plant is now ready to be transplanted. You can pull the whole thing up. Or you can clone a clipping from the one that you just tried to transplant. For some reason I have had great luck cloning rose bushes this year.

Take a clipping and put it in some root starter if you have some. If you don&#;t have.
