I would think you shouldn't move them until spring, to see whether 
this is the winter they will bloom for you. If you do move them, some
shade during the hottest part of the day might be a good idea, if you
have such a spot.

(@ around $3.50 each--I almost feel guilty)

PS  Don't expect tall bloomstalks--they bloom way down in the foliage
