When is the best time to transplant foxgloves?

I have them coming up where I really don't want in the very front .What are my chances of trying to move them now ? (it is cold and rainy today )
Does anyone know if they even like transplanting ? any help is appreciated.
Thank You.

You are in luck because you can transplant foxgloves ( I assume you mean Digitalis purpurea, the common foxglove) almost any time except when they are in full bloom. Even then, if careful, they'll transplant. Cold and rainy is perfect transplanting weather for the plants, if not for you! Foxgloves grow wild here and they come up in the most unlikely places. I transplant them every year to wherever I want them to go. If they are in active growth, just get plenty of soil with the roots and water them well and they'll be fine.

Pixiedish ..Thanks...I will try some this afternoon,I thought they might be OK but wanted to know everyones opinions and YOU are the one that has done :-)))
I transpanted a 2foot high white bleedingheart just about 3 weeks ago,also on a cold rainy day and it is doing great .

It hardly went into shock and then it was on the 3rd day because it was warmer.
