    Hello I have a Thalictrum delavayi 'Hewitt's Double' that I bought at the Wonderful UBC Plant Sale in 2011, it came up and bloomed well that year and the next. I since have planted 2 blueberries to the west of it, where it would be getting most of it's sun. It has gradually been getting smaller. I want to transplant it to a sunnier spot. Should I do that now?

    Hi there!

    Now would be a good time, I am assuming the plant is still mostly dormant and isn't pushing much foliage. Perennials tend to be pretty tough at this stage. It may experience a little bit of a delay this year, but I would suspect it would be negligible. Just be sure to water it thoroughly after transplanting.
