How do I move black eyed susans in winter?

In February (Indiana) I am moving and want to take my black eyed susans with me. I am afraid the ground will be so frozen I won't be able to dig them up & transplant. Do I dig them up now and put in pots for transplant in the spring? Help! I have so many of them, I don't want to leave them! :?

Yes. If you don't have any containers maybe visit a garden center, they might charge you a lot, but explain what you want them for. Then replant after you've moved.

So, once I have put them into containers, (I'll have to split them) I try to keep them dormant by keeping them in the garage? Wet or dry? Thanks!

No leave them ouside and water once a week if no rain/snow.
