Question: 1009-3713
When is the best time to transplant Black Eyed Susan? Gary, Norwich, CT

Mort's Answer:
If they are still vibrant and not with mildew, you can leave them until later. You will stunt the growth by moving now but not kill them. Most perennials are best cut down after the blooms have dissipated in the fall. I would wait until they start to look tired and cut them back to six inches from the ground. This will make the transplant easier at that time.
