|We have some Black Eyed Susans that my wife would like to transplant, they are about ready to bloom, when is a good time to transplant them? Is now ok, before they bloom, or wait until after they are done flowering.

|It would be better to wait until late August or early September -- after they have bloomed -- to move them, but if you don't mind losing or delaying the blooms you could also do it now. Trim them back and take as large a rootball as possible if you move them now, and keep them well watered until they become reestablished. If you move them in September you could also divide them at the same time.
