Has anyone dug up and moved a oriental poppy successfully. I want to move a "Patty's Plum" from one border to another.



Well they can be lifted and divided either now or in the spring. So yes.

Yes, we lifted, divided and replanted one in the spring and amost every plantlet is still growing. Should be fine.

yes I have but sometimes any roots left behind grow too so I have moved them but also 'kept' them where they were originally :o)
