Can I Dig Up Bulbs That Have Already Sprouted and Still Save Them?

pjparrothead added on March 8, 2011 | Answered

I purchased a home in December, it is now March. Across the front of the home, bulbs are sprouting, I am not sure what they are though. We are getting ready to build a deck and the bulbs will have to go. Can I still save them if I dig them up now, or are they done for? I live on the Washington State Coast (in case that matters. )

Yes, you can dig them up and store them. Here is an article that you may find helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/bgen/how-to-store-bulbs-that-have-sprouted.htm

Alternatively, you could replant them in another location.
