Q.Moving Plants

Anonymous added on August 24, 2011 | Answered

We are having a deck built this fall that will require the moving of several hostas, monkey grass plants, and ‘black eyed Susans’. Living in Nashville, it is still rather hot and humid, but approximately when can we move these plants without harming or killing them?

While I would recommend transplanting in fall or even spring, as long as you provide them with adequate water while they are establishing themselves, you can do so now. It also helps to make certain that all the roots are included when lifting and sometimes pruning them back will help alleviate transplant shock as well.
