When is the best time to transplant rhododendrons?

Answer

Rhododendron plants can be safely transplanted, and fall is the best time to do this. Late winter and spring can also be suitable times, though not as good as fall. Summer is not a good time to transplant rhododendrons.

When transplanting rhododendrons, gardeners should take care with the plant's roots, making sure they dig out a sufficient portion of the rhododendron's root ball. According to the University of Washington, a rhododendron that is about 6 feet tall should have a 3-foot root ball, so making sure to dig a large enough trench around the plant will be an important step toward effective transplantation.

I suggest the autumn - Wait unti the plant is dormant, the ground is wetter and the air cooler. It will give the roots a better chance to re-establish before the growth period again
