Will my aubretia survive a December transplant?

I'm moving house this week and want to take a one-year old aubretia with me which has suddenly 'taken off' this last few weeks and is now a lovely plant. No greenhouse to overwinter it.  It will go straight into the ground at the new house. Chances of survival? I live in Pennine Yorkshire. Any tips to maximise it's chances much appreciated. Thank you

    Pretty good  chance Mary, I move stuff around all winter unless it's freezing or waterlogged

  • That's great news, thank you very much, I look forward to a great display in spring. Happy gardening.

  • Dear nutcutlet, the new garden soil is quite heavy, should I add anything to it to stop the aubretia from getting waterlogged?

    Some grit would open up the soil a bit, mix some in and put some round the neck of the plant as well.
