Question: Hi.... thanks for all your help this summer!!
Is it too late to transplant perennials? When is the cut off date for lower Michigan?
I don't want to lose any plants by doing it too late.

Thanks, Dorian

Answer: As long as the weather is above freezing and you don't expect a killing frost for another 2-3 weeks, you can dig and transplant your perennials now. If a hard freeze is imminent, you might want to wait until spring to dig and transplant your perennials.

Best wishes with your garden!
