Lily Of The Valley Plants

Moving Lily of the Valley

nicolelepsch added on October 30, 2015 | Answered

We are building a house and plan to move next August; I have a number of lily of the valley plants I'd like to bring with me when I go. What's the best way for me to do this? Do I let them bloom again this spring and then dig them up to transplant in late summer? Or do I dig up the bulbs now and try to store them over the winter?

Leave the Lily Of The Valley in the ground until you are ready to move them.

You can trim back the plants to about 4 to 5 inches to aid in lifting the plants.
If you can move them to their new home right away this would be best otherwise place them in pots and care for them as potted plants until you can replant them.

Potted plants will need more water then they would in the ground.
