Right now they have small new shoots emerging.

I concur with Peter; the only time of year when I've been able to transplant
them successfully is October.  Even then they readily succumb to root rot,
so it's best to soak them in a fungicide solution before you plant.

In my experience, once transplanted they are incredibly tough, but they hate
being transplanted.
