This transplanting acts as a kind of check, which is rather beneficial than otherwise.
Such fruit trees as have dropped their leaves may be transplanted; this is the best season for transplanting (though with care it may be done earlier), whether the leaves have fallen or not.
During the transplanting, preferably done on cloudy days or during light rains, the plants must be handled very carefully; machines are now available which can set out and water plants over from two to six acres in a working day.
Finish the transplanting of herbaceous plants by the end of the first week.
A crop of very large bulbs may also be secured by sowing about the beginning of September, and transplanting early in spring to very rich soil.
