You can move it from the ground to a flowerpot and vice-versa but may I recommend not doing it in the middle of the summer? The root system is small and shallow. The plant is very sensitive to sunlight changes in its environment. Expect it to complain by yellowing eaves. Your average date of first frost is the last week in October so consider that when moving it. Also be careful when fertilizing with a 90-day slow release fertilizer. Bring the pot inside once overnight temperatures are supposed to go below 60°F. Bring it outside once overnight temperatures are safely above 60°F. Put the pot in rollers to help move it easily and buy an extra set of rollers as a back up in case the rollers break when they are not well stocked in garden centers.
