Experts and BHG readers answer.
Thanks for writing. It won't be easy if the plants are large, but you can certainly move the shrubs.
When you dig them out of their current spot, keep as much of the root system intact as possible. The better condition the roots are in, the better the shrubs will take to being transplanted.
Also: To lessen the amount of time your burning bush are out of the ground, it's really helpful to dig the hole for their new spot before you dig them out of the ground. That way you can do all your digging at one time, then just plop the plant in the new spot and water it well.
Keep your burning bush moist, but not constantly wet or soggy for a few weeks after transplanting to them them get established. Then just care for them as normal.
I hope this helps. Good luck!
