Hi everyone,

I have several self-seeded SMOOTH OXEYE Heliopsis helianthoides (L.) False Sunflower (Heliopsis helianthoides var. scabra) and black-eyed susan plants that are growing in places where I don't want them. However, I do love them and can't bring myself to uproot them or cut them back. I'd love to transplant them to a different place, but I'm afraid that I'll kill them or harm their roots so badly that they won't survive.

What is the best way to dig them up and plant them in a different location? And is it better to do it in the fall, or in the spring?

Thanks in advance for any and all advice.
