Calla Lily Plants

Q.I have Calla lilies in a pot but want to move them to a bed. Can I do it now or must I wait until they are finished flowering?

I want to move them now as the pot they are in seems too small for 6 bulbs. Will they die down if I move them, or should I just wait until they are dying down after flowering? I want to put them in a bed so that they are there for the next season

Usually, you won't plant them in summer, but since you are in the UK and not the US I would imagine that it will be ok to plant at just about any time. Just make sure that it is not near freezing when you do so.

Now, transplanting will definitely make the blooms go away, but they will return next year. You can avoid transplant shock by not disturbing the roots, and burying them carefully.
