If you are moving bulbs that have already sprung up, as long as you get up as much of the surrounding soil and roots when digging them up, they should be fine. It may also help to have planting holes pre-dug in the new location (with similar growing conditions) so you can replant your bulbs as soon as possible after digging them up. This article will help with any shock that the plants may experience: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/learn-how-to-avoid-and-repair-transplant-shock-in-plants.htm If you are simply planting out bulbs that have previously been stored over winter, then take them from their stored locations and plant them in a suitable location that receive plenty of light and drainage.
