Newly planted perennials

I'm having some drainage issues in one corner of my yard where I recently planted about 8 perennials. I want to dig them out, fix the drainage problem and then replant. IS IT OKAY TO DIG THEM UP NOW if they've only been in the ground for about 2-3 weeks, or should I wait until the roots have established themselves over the summer?

Better to do it ASAP because the plants will not grow if they are water logged except for a few. Keep them in the shade until they are ready to be replanted.

i agree

dig them up soon if they get waterlogged they will turn yellow and probably get sick add some sand or pea gravel to the soil to help with drainage hope this helps
