I usually start moving, dividing plants as soon as it cools down so that they have as much time as possible to get reestablished before the cold weather sets in. I have done some in mid Sept. and they did fine.

I also move plants in Sept. It gives them extra time to set out roots and get established before spring. shouldn't be a problem.
