I want to tansplant at the right time of year

I have some Columnaris Aurea ( Chamaecyparis lawsoniana) which I was trying to make an hedge with but have lost a lot of them and so left with gaps, I now want to transplant the remaining ones elsewhere but am unsure what time of year to do this. They have been in the ground for about 2 years and are approx 5ft high. Could you please advise as I have lost so many already.
Many thanks.

Hi kathleen ~ October is the best month to move your chamaecyparis you need to dig as big a root ball as possible as not to disturb any of the roots have your new position ready make sure you have a big enough hole water the hole first and let it soak away before you move the plant heel in well and make sure you keep it watered
