    Hi all,

    I would like to relocate a 3.5 foot-tall current to a new location in my garden. When is the best time of year to do this? Is any special handling required? Other tips?

    Thanks very much,

    Wendy

    Winter. Should be easy to move.

    Winter is the best time or really early spring before it wakes up. get as big a root ball as possible.
