Most spring bulbs are best planted by October as this gives them a nice long period to form roots before flowering. The exception to this rule is Tulips which are best planted in November. If you plant bulbs after these times they may not perform well next spring. For shrubs it is normally best to move them during their period of dormancy (Late October – February) although evergreen shrubs are better moved during October or March as the soil is warm enough for roots to grow and establish quickly
