Red Hot Poker

Can I move an established red hot poker from a border now and replant up on a bank or be best to wait until spring?

    Hi @pepesnowy - the short answer is yes  :)
    They're pretty robust, and as long as it's died back, it should establish no problem. If the ground's waterlogged or frozen you wouldn't do it, but if the ground's very soggy, it wouldn't suit them anyway  ;)
    If it still has some foliage, you can still move it, but it's a good idea to trim the foliage back by half or so, just to make it easier for it to establish. If you're in a vey dry area, jus make sure it 's well watered in, and then the autumn weather should keep it ticking over. 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
