have a 2 m high Dracaena draco in my garden that needs to
be moved as it will eventually grow too big for the space it is
in. Is it possible to transplant it? If so when and how?
it is possible to move it. I would suggest late summer/early autumn
after the worst of the summer heat is over and before the winter
wet comes along.
The key to shifting is
to ensure that as much of the rootball as possible comes with it
and that it stays pretty much intact. The plant will need supporting
after you have moved it until its root system gets a chance to re-establish
