how late do you transplant?
I am frantically redesigning a few beds on these last warm days -- I'm not doing much division, just moving large clumps about. Mea culpa, some of these plants are in flower.... But I am cautious about continuing into October, in doubt as to whether the plants will have time to establish before the ground freezes. Some garden books I've consulted even insisted that no planting should be done later than 6 weeks before frost -- huh? That would mean Sept. 1 around here. It seems that 6 weeks before the ground freezes would be more reasonable.
How late do you walk around the garden with a plant on your shovel?
