    Morning Woo :)
    Depending on how long they have been in but now is a good time to move them. Semi shade should be good but grown here in full sun.
    If young bushes they shouldnt need to be pruned but otherwise I would cut back between a third and a half
    The usual soil enrichment incl fertiliser though Woo :)
