Can milkweed be transplanted? I have various plants coming up in my asparagus bed, and other parts of my flower beds and vegtable garden. We have a wet land that is overgrown and getting worse and I would like to transplant the milkweed at the near end.

Yes, if you move it as a small seedling. Take a ample soil ball with it and keep the soil moist. wetlands should make a good home for the milkweed.
