: I would like to know if it is o.k. to dig up some yucas, hostas and day lillies and replant them somewhere else in my landscape. I want to replace them with some of those spiral shaped trees and need to purchase the trees before the nursery sells them all. It is now August 12 and I'm not sure if I have to wait until sometime in September to dig up and replant these flowers, but again, time is of the essence since the nursery is having a end of season sale and the trees probaly won't be available much longer.
You could go ahead and purchase your spiral trees now anyway and care for them in their pots until it's cool enough to dig. Keep them in semi shade and make sure they don't dry out.
