The best time of day to plant, transplant and divide plants
But does time of day matter? Absolutely.
In fact, the best time of day to plant is in the late afternoon. The sun isn’t as hot and the wind has hopefully calmed down a bit. A later planting allows plants to acclimate overnight as well.
Plant in the mid-afternoon? Nope. Strong sun and strong winds are harsh on new transplants who just want to rest their nerves after their move.
Sun and wind can cause weak plants to wilt. Wind can also dry out the roots.
Anytime a plant wilts due to lack of water or too much wind is a big negative. Plants that suffer at the beginning of their growth cycle may never bounce back from the shock and even later down the road may never become robust.
Plants become less stressed when they are moved on a cloudy and calm day. Any humidity in the air is a big plus.
