Mary, excellent question - within the context of moving them, sometimes you have to dig when the plant has not had enough moisture to "endure" the transplant shock - other times it makes sense to ensure they are heavy with moisture, as they may be slow to adjust to the ne planting site, in spite of watering.

Potted plants need to be broken up if they are root-bound - otherwise just giving them a drink helps the move.

If a plant has been in storage, shipment or is dehydrated, it will suffer stress.  

You don't store roots or plants in buckets of water - unless you are slow to plant them!!!
