Because temperatures have dropped, it is less stressful on the plants when transplanting. The lower temperatures also makes watering and care easier and less frequent. They will still need watering until established, but the chore should be less burdensome with the lower temperatures. (As always, feel the soil a few inches below the service and if it is dry, water. It’s always best to water slowly and deeply. In the fall, perhaps once a week will be enough, as opposed to every other day in the heat of the summer.)
