    I never move anything until the flowering period is over. Normally if I transplant, I do it in the fall.

    Most blackeyed susans are annuals. Moving maybe a wate of time. But if you do move them cut back to 3 or 4 i ches above ground.

    I have also successfully transplanted in the spring, but it is probably too late for this year if your area is already getting summer like temperatures. If you are desperate to move it now, just ensure that you get a big chunk of dirt with the roots and plant the whole lot in the new space. You need to keep watering well and understand that you might not get any flowers this year.

    The recommending transplanting time for perennials,bulbs,shrubs and trees is mid September

    I moved some which had seeded themselves in a spot did not want them. I left them last year, but it was not a good spot, and I moved one chunk about three weeks ago. They survived and hopefully will flower. I moved another bunch a week ago and it has been very hot. They are still alive, but I am unsure if they will flower. Fall is best if you can, but I had to either move these or pull them up like weeds.
