This is because plants are growing slowly or they are quite dormant at that time. Therefore, plants can be dug with minimum damage and can be transported to a new garden easily. In addition, because of the cooler temperatures of winter, the plants also come under less stress while you move. If you look at it emotionally and physically, it is quite easier to leave a garden when it is sleeping like it does in the winter.
