The Q&A Archives: When to Move Perennials

Question: Is it okay to move perennials in August or September? Before or after bloom?

Answer: In general, late summer is a great time to transplant perennials, because they have plenty of time still to grow a healthy root system to take them through the winter. If you transplant before bloom, cut back any blossom stalks that do appear so the plant will put more energy into root development. Enjoy!
