Would appreciate any guidance on whether it is good time to lift and re-site Broom now as it has finished flowering?  Asperge

 Hi asperge, you might get away with it if it's a small one and you lift it with all its root and soil but they don't like being moved.

I concur, rarely survive the moving, but on the plus side, they will grow very very easily from seed.

best to replace it ....if its been in place for a couple of years it wont transplant

as I said, save some of the seed pods, they germinate for fun. They also grow fairly quickly, my father grew some, and in decent soil in a nice spot had a 3ft plant in 18 months-2 years.
