Moving Spring Bulbs


maaaaa added on March 10, 2016 | Answered

I am moving in June and would like to take my spring bulbs with me. The crocus are blooming now and everything else, daffodils, hyacinths, tulips, etc. is poking through. What do you think would be the best way to handle moving them when the time comes? Thank you in advance!

If you can wait to dig them up until they are done blooming, this is the best scenario.
Even better is if the leaves have died down naturally.

Then dry and prepare the bulbs, just like you would for winter storage for the journey to their new home.
You may lose some flowering for the next spring, but they should began to bloom again the following spring. Some bulbs are more sensitive then others when dug up in the spring and summer.
