I have milkweed in my lawn were seeds fell, they are about a foot high, I thought I dug deep for the root, but when I transplanted them they died. How do I transplant without them dying. I am new to replanting them. Normally I use the seeds for next year.

I usually transplant milkweed when they are smaller no more than three inches tall as long as they have true leaves. I water the soil around them to make the soil soft and I have the planting area ready for the transplants. Then I water again and for the next week or two I make sure they are moist.

if you can dig deeper you may find the main horizontal roots.
Plant it and they will come.
