How do you transplant perennials safely?

Moving Perennials

When relocating perennials, be careful not to lose too much of the root ball. Dig around the entire plant and then slide the root ball onto a tarp. Fold the sides of the tarp around the roots and lift the tarp up to move the plant to its new location. This helps you keep the root mass intact and minimizes shock, which ensures successful transplanting.
