What is this plant?

Hi all, first post here. I bought a house with a decent sized garden. I need to know what this plant is and how to move it to a new place in the garden.imageimage

    It's perennial cornflower (Centaurea montana) aka great blue-bottle.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Beware, if you let it go to seed you'll soon have it all over your garden. Agree it's very pretty though.image

    A lovely self seeder, but easy to pull out if it's in the wrong place. Dead head for more flowers.

    In London. Keen but lazy.
