You can do it any time from now - though I don't know about where you live, but its very dry here in West London - I'm currently waiting to move things around a bit until we have some wet weather, and the soil's damp. If, though, its easy for you to water, then do it as soon as you like.

Hi Jacque, I moved a few shrubs around in my garden on Sunday, a Cordyline, Hebe, Escallonia and Choisya.......watered the planting hole really well and have watered them every morning since and they look fine so far. I usually make a hollow round the stem so the water soaks straight down instead of running away..........
