Moving A Privet Hedge.

September 1st, 2016 · No Comments

Moving a privet hedge this is best carried out in the autumn or spring before the private starts to send out new shoots.Your best bet is to try to move it with as much of the root ball as possible.Easing the root-ball onto plastic sheeting to transport it is a good way to try and keep the root ball intact. Prepare the planting holes prior to planting so that the root ball is exposed to the elements for the minimum amount of time.Mix some compost and bone-meal into the back fill soil.Make sure the planting hole is well forked at the bottom.You could try mixing some ready hydrated Super-gel to the back-fill to reduce the risk of the newly planted hedge drying out.You will need to water during dry times and during its first year after moving.
