Transplanting winterberry shrub

Asked September 14, 2015, 4:45 PM EDT

I want to transplant some established winterberry shrubs soon due to planned excavation where they currently grow. I've transplanted other types of shrubs but not these. They are currently in good to excellent shape. Looking for basic instructions and probability of success. Location is just north of the St. Paul U of M campus.

It's getting pretty late in the season to transplant woody plants, but you can probably move these plants now if they are well taken care of over the winter. There are no special instructions for Winterberries, as opposed to other woody shrubs. Here are the recommendations from the University;
