Moving Heather

I have two heather plants I want to move, but I've been told they find it difficult to regenerate once the roots have moved. Does anyone have any tips? thanks.

    Depends how big they are but try moving them in the autumn.

    Alex, they are doing a lot of work at my golf club to regenerate the heather which has been lost over the years due to excessive fertilisiing etc. They are also bringing in heather in turf format which I understand is a new concept. Anyway, not that I know anything on this matter (!) but I can say they they did all the turf laying etc in the dormant winter months. It has really flourished this year so I would think they were right in that respect. In saying that, I believe you can get summer and winter flowering heather so not sure if that would make a difference. The heather at the club is summer flowering.
