Some types do not transplant well and resent disturbance; however, to reduce transplant shock, try cutting back about a third of its growth.The best time to transplant any plant is on a cloudy day or in late afternoon so they have a chance to get settled in before drying effects of the sun set in. Place salvias in the ground at the same depth or slightly below the level they were originally growing.
