Default Hop Transplant

The heat in the Midwest has pretty much scorch my hops so no harvest this year. My question is: Is it ok to dig up my plants to move them. I am reconfiguring my backyard and they are in the way. My gut tells me it should be ok, but I was wondering if anyone has had any experience. Thanks.

Take a big enough root ball and you can safely move anything...

All I can say is that you're adding stress on top of stress. Give it a go and let us know what happens. Gut instinct says they may make it but the other gut says something like Clint Eastwood said about the punk feeling lucky - was it 5 or 6, or however that line went. You may or may not know what I'm talkin' bout you're the boss! Keep us posted!
