Spring is the best time to move your plants. You can prune them first and then dig and transplant. The next best time is in the early fall. If you move them in the fall, don't prune them until the following spring. (Pruning encourages new growth and anything that develops in late fall won't have time to harden off before winter weather sets in.) Good luck with your plants.
