    I know the best time is fall BUT where I want to put them is not ready. What will happen if I transplant them in the spring?

    They grow the roots like most plants when the ground is very cold before it freezes solid. Just don't damage the new growth on them in the spring.

    I just pot mine and sink the pots into my annual garden, then in the spring I plant them where I want them or trade with friends for another color! :goodjob:
