I recommend transplanting early in the dormant season, a couple of weeks after the leaves drop in the fall.

I am far from an expert on necessary pruning if any, but I would say that if you transplant with plenty of root, water it in for root/soil contact, and water through droughts next year, there is no need to worry.

For insurance you could also plant a couple of cuttings at the same time, 6-8 inches long, plant on a slant mostly underground with a few buds above the surface. Near a north or east wall, far enough out for moist ground, is good.

I have a currant bush that is about 4 years old that I'd like to transplant. I'd appreciate any suggestions on how to do this successfully. Is now a good time to move it? Any pruning of top or roots needed? Thanks
