The best time for transplanting is as soon as the plants go dormant—usually early December for Bandera County. The roots grow during the dormant period and when spring comes and growth starts, the plant has a head start. The later in the winter that you plant, the less time that the roots have to grow. In some years we have 100-degree temperatures in March and this is deadly for plants with small feeder root systems.
