A friend arrived yesterday with about 10 black bags full of mature shrubs which includes heather, phormiums and a Lilac Tree. grasses etc. Her Aunt wanted them all gone as she is slabbing her garden and she could not bear for them to be destroyed. i have them in water in the bags and will be planting them this afternoon with the help of a mini digger. I know this is not the season for moving shrubs. Am I wasting my time, will they die?
