Ajuga- can I move it now? How best to do it?

Hi everyone, I bought 2 half dead ajuga plants last year from the bargain bin and planted them in a temporary bed. They've done rather well where they are but I need to move them. Is now a good time to move them? It's still getting down to -4 some nights.

The roots looks rather shallow where they've spread across the ground so I'm not sure whether to dig up the whole lot and transplant or whether they can be split in order to make a few plants.

They may only have been 50p and not exactly rare but I get rather attached to the plants I revive ????

    Ajuga are as tough as old boots but I would wait until March.

    any day that's good enough for me to be out there gardening and the ground isn't frozen or over-wet, I move hardy perennials that need moving

  • Thanks all, I've added some compost and will try to delay moving it for another few weeks. should I move them as one big clump or do you think it's ok to split?
