moving milkweed plants
I have a milkweed plant that has gotten way too big for where I planted it. Want to move it but afraid to because maybe it will die. Is there a way to move it without it dying?

Milkweed does not transplant well because of its very long taproot so you would just need to be sure to dig deep enough to get most of the tap root. And, be sure to keep the soil moist after replanting so that the roots get get acclimated.
