Breaking the rules
Have you ever broken the rules and got away with it?
I moved a large Euphorbia characias in midsummer - a no-no according to the books. Sure enough the soil fell away from the rootball leaving the small root system exposed so it looked like it was a goner. However I planted it into a depression and watered, watered, watered; and it survived to flower beautifully next spring. It's now quite a huge plant, and probably should be replaced, but it stubbornly refuses to put out any seedlings
