can i move any of my young plants/shrubs now that are in built up borders or do i wait until spring.



Your profile doesn't say what area of the country you live in and this will affect what type of chances you can take.

If you take a large enough rootball area then they could be relocated, easily.

If you're disturbing their roots by not having a decent enough rootball they may not get a chance to settle them back in before the cold weather comes and then there's a good chance they'd die - or at least suffer quite badly.

If you live in London or the south west, you can do it, but elsewhere, it would have been best to do this a couple of weeks ago - but if you're quick, the soil's still warm enough. From this weekend, it starts to cool down rapidly though. I'd echo Louise's comments regarding root balls...
