Default Transplanting Musa Basjoo

I know this has been talked about often as I searched quite a bit here before posting. I didnít find an answer to my situation so I thought Iíd ask the experts. I live in zone 6b/7a and have a very well established clump of musa Basjoo. They have over wintered very well for me and multiplied like rabbits! Anyway, the area they are in is about to become part of a large planting of dwarf conifers. So they have to move. Soon. Like in the next two weeks. My questions are, first, how do I move them? Cut them back and dig them up and relocate? Second question, is it okay to move them in the fall? Of course our summer has had excessive heat and the past month has seen nearly every day in the 90ís and zero rain. Theyíre practically going dormant already.

Either way I plan to move them no matter what. Iíll transplant what I can to the new area and pot up some pups and throw them in the garage for the winter. I just wanted to see if anybody has had any experience with moving them during the month of October. The forecast for the foreseeable future is mid to upper 70ís so theyíll have a good month in their new home before the first hard freeze hits them.

Thanks for the reply. Iíd have to disagree though. Not all plants move better in the spring. Fall is the best time for dividing, transplanting, and planting new beds. Certain species you can only move during the fall when they are dormant or they will die.

you got all the bases covered, just make sure you save enough pups inside in case
of bad weather. basjoo is very hardy even in 6/7
