Firstly I'm aware September isn't the best time to move plants, however, due to some building work that is due to take place in October in the front garden I'd like to try and save some of my favourite plants before the front garden is then re-designed and replanted in the spring.
I will be able to keep the main plants where they are whilst the work is being done however I have two hydrangeas that I love that and want to rescue so I can reposition them when replanting. Can anyone tell me if this is even possible? We inherited them with the house so they've been in at least 10 years and from the size when we moved in guessing much longer. Also will they be ok over the winter out of the ground or should I temporarily replant somewhere else? Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
