When can I move Arum italicum (Lords & Ladies)?

Aquitane, France Fr

I have noticed these popping up again all over the garden. I love the leaves and the berries on these and would like to put a clump of them together. When would be the best time to move them?



Now is a good time as the new leaves haven't developed yet. Dig the clump up and replant in good soil. Was the original plant variegated? The seedlings often aren't.

The leaves have already developed, that's how I managed to spot them. Should I leave them until after they've produced the berries?

Ah, just spotted that you're not in UK! I moved mine after the berries came but before the new leaves.

They appear over here in both the Spring and Autumn. I'll leave them until the berries have appeared then - thanks for your help! :o))
