I wish to move my sambucus to a different part of the garden. its growth has been affected by the strong winds of late. should i prune it back very hard and should i do this before or after moving?

Sambucus or elder can be moved when the leaves have fallen. It is no harm to prune the top to balance root loss in lifting.
