Q.Moving reblooming lilies

The deer are eating the blooms off the lilies just as they’re ready to open up. Can I move them to another area now?

Nipped in the bud! Yes, you can move daylilies although as you know, spring and fall are better times. To compensate for summer heat, you will need to water well but what I think is more important is to provide the plants with some shade for up to a week. Watch the plant and remove the shade when it seems to have recovered. Rig up some shade with leaf bags over poles (I use a shovel sometimes), a large box placed to provide shade or an old piece of fabric taped to sticks. Better looking alternatives include row cover material or "shade fabric". Time the move for decent temperatures and there is nothing like rain for helping plants settle in. Good luck.
