Will Teddy Bears survive being dug up and re-planted in the same, but a higher, better draining, bed

The leaves on my Teddy Bears develop pin head sized black spots which morph into large black areas on their tips. The advice now is that it's a fungal disease, probably from having wet feet (formerly they said it was stress from lack of water). It's planned to dig them up, raise the bed by 200ml, re-do the drainage and re-fertilize, and re-plant them in the same spot.
Are they likely to survive this treatment and what are the chances of success?

Answer: Hi Paul, this could work as long as long as you try not to disturb the roots too much and use a liquid feed with a little bit of seaweed in it (we have a great new product)like Thrive naturals range before and after transplanting…Also as a treatment afterwards we have a product called Yates Antirot which can be used as a prevenatative and a cure for root rot diseases. I hope this helps http://www.yates.com.au/products/fertilising/water-soluble/yates-thrive-vegie-and-herb-natural-fish-blood-bone-concentrate/#YLUWyzgVwfTxwSYR.97
