Hello Pinkie, You have properly already moved them, however, yes you can move them, however only if the weather is mild, and you have prepared the ground they are going into first (i.e. dig it over), lift the plantscarfully making sure you don't disturb the roots too much, plant them straight away (they hate to be kept out of the soil), firm around the roots and water them in (even if it has rained recently), do not feed them yet, wait until they are starting to flower and if the fence has broken some (within reason), still plant them, take off the broken parts as this will encourage them to become bushy. Wallflowers (Elysium), are commonly grown as a spring bedding plant.
They flower the following March, offering a splash of color when there’s little else in bloom. Perennial wallflowers are also available, and have become increasingly popular in recent years.
Varieties such as ‘Bowles’s Mauve’ and ‘Winter Orchid’ flower almost continually throughout the year, making them great value in small gardens. Perennial wallflowers are a great source of nectar, so can provide a reliable source of food for pollinators over a long season.
Grow wallflowers in moist but well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. Sow biennial wallflowers annually in late spring and plant them out in autumn.
Bedding (biennial) wallflowers work well when planted with spring bulbs such as tulips and daffodils, and can also be grown in pots. Perennial wallflowers are best planted towards the front of a mixed ornamental border.
Perennial wallflowers cope well with cold weather and short bouts of frost. However, they don’t cope well with wet and windy winters, so make sure the soil is well drained and protect from wind.
Wallflowers are part of the brassier family and therefore can be prone to club root and other diseases that affect this family of plants. Downy mildew, leaf blight and flea beetles can cause problems; and beware slug and snail damage to young plants.
Flowers are a mix of orange and purple, so they really brighten up the winter months with their cheery blooms Your garden will brim with color from March to October with this all season collection of clematis.

Sow your seeds in modular 6 × 4 trays, one per space, because generally these members of the brassier, or cabbage family, germinate very easily. They will flower next April and most are highly fragrant, smelling like shady violets.
Left to their own devices, perennial wallflowers have a tendency to become woody and leggy and then fizzle out within four to five years, usually succumbing over winter. The way to extend their lifespan and keep them compact and vigorous is to give them a yearly midsummer trim by cutting into the foliage.
By early to mid-July your plant will hopefully have bushed out to provide plenty of cutting material. Trim under the node and plunge them into small seed trays filled with damp horticultural sand, or gritty compost.

The Sunset Series Raised by Tower Seeds in Surrey about ten years ago, this is a disease-resistant F1 hybrid strain subdivided by color. The name characters is thought to derive from the Greek for hand (char) and flower (ant hos) and the heavily scented flowers were carried as nosegays to smother the stench of Elizabethan streets.
He wrote about a tragic accident that occurred at Namath Castle on the banks of the River Tweed in Scotland. The Earl of March’s daughter, Elizabeth, had fallen in love with a young nobleman from a rival clan, Scott of Susheela.
The strong-willed Elizabeth refused and her father locked her up in the tower as a punishment. The handsome Scott disguised himself as a minstrel and serenaded her whilst they made plans to elope, but when the time came Elizabeth fell to her death, landing close to a sprig of wallflower growing along the tower’s wall.
Most wallflower plants are of the genus Elysium, with some types being from Characters, sometimes called Wildflower. Wallflower plants have perky spring blooms, often in shades of yellow and orange.
Newer cultivars of the wallflower garden plant come in shades of pinks, purples and blue; some varieties have chocolate or crimson blooms. Perennial wallflower plants are grown as annuals in colder zones.
But they retain evergreen foliage in USDA gardening zones 8-10, which may have a silvery tint. Cover seeds lightly or simply press them into moist soil.
Once sprouted, some gardeners cover with netting about 8 inches (20 cm.) Grow wallflower plants in a sunny or partly shaded location.
