You can do so now, weather permitting.

You can if you goal is long term placement of the hyacinth. But, if you are simply looking to bring the lovely blooms indoors or to a more frequented part of the yard, this will not work well. The blooms will fade fast after they are transplanted due to stress.

If you are looking to move them to a container permanently, fall is the best time. But, if you are like me, it can be hard to remember where you planted them without leaves to mark the location. If this is the case for you, then late spring, right after the leaves start to turn yellow, will also work.
