Thanks! I appreciate the help. I've got 4 bushes. Ill look at all of them to see if they all need replanted. Any other tips you can provide? I've never done anything like this before. How big do you suppose the root ball is on a plant like this? Should I dig it up as large as I can physically handle? Add enough garden soil to raise the crown above grade and then regrade? Anything else I should be adding to the hole?
