I am moving and would like to dig up a few of my favorite bulbs and take them. I won’t be able to get them back in the Ground right away. What’s the best way to do this?

This will depend on the bulb. You must dig them up while they are in dormancy, then keep them in dormancy until their specific time to plant. This is dependent on the plant, also.

Here is an article that will help you to store bulbs until they are ready to plant: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/bgen/preparing-bulbs-for-winter-how-to-store-bulbs-for-winter.htm
