Re-plant Prickly Pear Cactus

I am building a fire pit where my Prickly Pear Cactus are and need to know how/when to move them. Can I dig them up and store them in water until I make my fire pit and then re-plant them? They have been in this spot for two years and are doing very well. They had many lovely blooms this year!

The ideal time to transplant your prickly pear cactus would be in early spring, although they are not as particular about timing as some other plants. When you dig them up, rather than sticking them in water, which could cause them to rot, cover their exposed roots with moist mulch until you can replant them. You can even leave them lying on the ground for a few days, and they should take off once replanted.
