October and make sure you have prepared the spot you are moving it to prior to lifting make sure you get a really big root ball and be prepared to keep well watered to allow the roots to reestablish.

Hopefully you will have another sheltered spot to move it to. If it is really very young I would keep it in a pot until it gets a bit bigger if its happy where it is.
