have you had a hard freeze yet? If not........dig yer hole where you want
it, dig it up and plant it. Water it well, mulch it and hope for the best.
Since sap has fallen, it should do fine. If you decide to wait until spring,
dig it up when the ground is diggable and try not to disturb the roots so it
won't know it was dug up. Don't worry, I planted a three gallon pot of lilac
shoots a dear friend gave me in one spot, the landlord's son mowed it to the
ground (this was before I knew about coppicing and stooling shrubs), I dug
it up to be able to FIND it once it grew back. Then we moved to this house
and I planted it in the wrong spot, replanted it, dug it up and eventually
plugged it in where it is now. A total of five movings before it got where
it is now. And NOW........it wouldn't let me dig it up without a tractor and
madgardener who moves shrubbery all the time..........................in
