i need to move a bed of red hot pokers they have been in more than 20 years


By Roblin

redhot pokers very over grown would like to move to more shady side of garden



you should be able to move them any time now or in the spring but I dont find they do well in shady areas. so you may find you lose the flowering potential. I would use a spade and cut through the root stock or use two forks back to back. Plant to the same depth as before and water well.

welcome to GoY too.
