Either spring or fall are good seasons to dig and transplant landscape trees and shrubs. That's when weather is cooler and rainfall usually abundant. Both conditions will help the plants re-establish themselves quickly. Go ahead and move your plants. If they suffer some transplant stress they may not bloom on schedule - but then again, they just might. Hope so! Enjoy your garden!
