Moving perennials

When would the best time be to move some lavender, foxglove and penstemmon, they were planted this year, but some do need moving. Is the Autumn the best time to move or should I wait until the Spring.



The answer is - when they are dormant. Autumn is a good time. With Penstemons, it's easy to take cuttings, so do that as well - ASAP - and then move them. Lavenders are not too keen on being moved - but again, you can take cuttings just in case. Why move foxgloves? They are biennials - so it's probably easier to plant seeds and ditch the old plants.

Good luck with them all!
