Topiary tree horse

Chris Barry asked 6 years ago

We have a topiary tree with inner frame in the shape of a horse. It’s probably about 10 years old now. Is it possible to remove it from current location and replant, sell on or donate?

At ten years old, it is well established and would be tricky to lift and move successfully due to inevitable damage to the root system.

But if it is essential to do so, lift it carefully in March and make sure it is watered regularly until it is growing well again. 

Or you could dig around the roots to acclimatize the plants to root loss and lift it a year later.
