You can move your clematis in the fall or in the spring. Either time is good because the weather is cooler and rainfall usually abundant. If rainfall is sparse, be sure to water the plants deeply once each week after the move.

The important thing in moving established plants is to dig carefully so you don't injure too many roots. I always water the night before to make digging the next day easier. If you accidentally sever a root, be sure to cut it clean so it won't develop disease problems. Best wishes with the move!
