wild Solomon's Seal

Asked September 30, 2017, 11:35 AM EDT

I have a lovely little bunch of wild Solomon's Seal growing in a spot that is going to be disturbed by driveway work within the next year or two. I read on line that spring is the best time to transplant Solomon's Seal. I was wondering if it would be safe to transplant in the fall or should I be patient & wait till spring? Any other tips you can give me on the transplant?

Thanks

This plant can be transplanted in the fall. All species are readily propagated in the fall by division of the rootstock. It is necessary to leave at least one bud on the divisions.
Keep well watered after transplanting.
