After a few years, should the bulbs be dug up and then get rid of weeds, which have accumulated over the years? Can the bulbs be put back in the same location? What time of the year is best to do this? Can this be done? My plants are 10 years old and are starting to look rather messy. Should I dig them up? When and how?

You can dig them up anytime if you’re simply relocating them to another area. However, you may want to consider using an organic weed killer or hand pull weeds once the grape hyacinth’s foliage has died back. This should not cause any ill effects on the bulbs in the ground.
