Hi Don. I would like to transplant my Yesterday today and tomorrow to make way for a fence. It will remain in the same garden bed have the same conditions its been growing in for the last 15 years and will be beside another Yesterday today and tomorrow which has always done well in this spot. Is this type of plant easily transplanted? It’s around 1.5 meters high. I would rather save it than just cut it out if possible. Many thanks Louise.

Hi Louise, it should be fine to transplant it in late August or early September. Do remember that the fruit of yesterday and tomorrow (Brunfelsia) is poisonous to dogs. Don
