digging up bulbs

Zone Franklin (western) N.C. 28734 | chil1193 added on June 15, 2015 | Answered

Having work done to the house, which necessitated digging up lily, crocus and tulip bulbs. I would like to store in refrigerator and then replant. I seem to remember my grandmother doing this and she planted right before a freeze. Will this work?

    You could go ahead and plant them in your new location now. Moving them now most likely will effect your flower output next spring.
