Lifting the Forsythia Bush This idea came from my husband.

Digging Up a Forsythia Tap Root. Long before most plants in a garden wake up from winter dormancy, forsythias (Forsythia spp.) are in full bloom. Apr 12, Have one person place the two planks in the hole an push under and lever the root ball up while the second person digs some more under the plant to release the remaining roots. Now pull the sledge over to the hole edge and use the planks again to lever the forsythia out of the hole and onto the treefelling.buzzted Reading Time: 10 mins.

Oct 27, Digging Roots. Forsythia has a very healthy and reasonably deep root system, so leave about 2 feet of the final stems above ground. Dig around to find the roots and cut them back.

Dig down around the stems to get as much of the root out as possible. You might be able to worry the roots lose by heaving the stems backward and treefelling.buzzted Reading Time: 3 mins. Apr 20, Planting forsythia shrubs grown in containers. Dig a hole that is at least two times as wide as the root ball of your plant and the same depth as the root area.

Lynwood Gold Forsythia is a very popular variety that many gardeners choose.

Remove the plant from the container and set the root ball into the hole. Make sure that it will sit at the same level with the ground.
