Clematis can be transplanted in the fall, late winter or very early spring before growth begins. If you move it now, it may suffer some setback. If you have a early flowering clematis, move it immediately after it has finished flowering. If yours blooms in summer or in the fall, wait until late fall to move your plant. Dig as large a root ball as is possible (make sure soil is moist); the more roots preserved, the less the transplanting process will hinder the plant's growth. Or, you can simply prune your plants back to make it fit its current location. Best wishes with the move.
