I want to move some perennials and other plants around the garden. Fortunately, due to all the cold, they haven't grown very much, but I'm sure when the temperature does start on the up, growth will happen with a vengeance. However, I'm conscious that although the plants are growing (slowly), and daytime temperatures are above freezing, night time is below freezing, so I'm wondering if I should wait until both day AND night temperatures are above 0C before moving anything. The things I want to move are Geraniums, Aquilegia, Sedums, Ferns, and dig up, split and replant Crocosmia (which is already 6 inch green spikes). My soil is relatively light (sandy/silty loam) so is not cold like clay loam or heavy clay. I'm desperate to get in the garden this Easter weekend and it will be the last real chance I have until end of April.
