    Hi Carl,

    I would have thought that transferring it from a pot into the ground would do it good. I don't think that that counts as moving it.
    As long as you have prepared the ground beforehand and keep it watered you should be ok.

    I think the " risk to moving mature ones ", is a warning about digging one out that is already planted in the ground and then replanting it.

      Mind you, they grow big, and are difficult to prune and still get flowers.

      Nice plant though.

                It should be OK transplanting from pot to soil. :blue thumb: It will need plenty of watering in this weather.

                You may want to keep it pruned at the top. Ours is over 10ft now and is a bit droopy in form because we didn't prune it. It prefers a sunny sheltered spot and acid soil. Our soil is alkaline but it seems quite happy. :)

                  Might be my eyes so forgive me if I'm wrong, but it looks like the soil in the ground is higher than it was in the pot. If so then you might want to remove some of the soil from around the base. Lovely tree though, I fancy one myself but don't have any more space.

                    I read that as "Might be the angle of my eyes" :lunapic 130165696578242 5:


                    back on topic I spotted one of these in the front garden of a house in town and I wondered what it was, very striking tree when it's flowering.
