What do the garden experts say about moving perennials?

I am scared that when I move my perennials I will kill them.

You should wait until 6 weeks before your frost. Dig well around your plant and well below the root base. Divide your perennial, plant and keep well watered.

Garden experts are a mixed bag. Some of them say that perennials can only be moved after all blooms have stopped. Others say you can move them any time. The fact is, they should be moved only after the last set of flowers has died in order to avoid shock.

It is usually safe to move perennials, just as long as you are sure to get most of the root bundle when you dig it up for transplanting. Water thouroughly immediately after transplanting.

Before you keeping the plants in pot , you should make the soil dry by spreading it under the sunlight that rays kills the bacteria and make the soil fresh. we should keep the plants under sunlight which gives flowers and rest of the plants in shadows. you have to cut with garden shears or just regular scisssors.
