Can you move a three-year-old crepe myrtle that never has bloomed?

Yes, you may move a three-year-old Crepe Myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica) that has not ever bloomed.Specifically, the best time to transplant is in October. Fall lends itself to transplanting any plant because the gardener and the plant are not dealing with the heat, light and moisture extremes of summer. The plant needs time to adjust to new surroundings. The adjustment tends to work best during the time that the plant is not actively growing.In transplanting, it is important to do a soil analysis of the previous and the new sites. It also is important to inspect the underground parts of the shrub. The lack of a bloom may be due to natural, biological processes within the crepe myrtle or to problems within the roots or soil.
