Q.When Can You Move Bulbs After They Bloom To Move To Another House?

Zone 83709 | Anonymous added on July 20, 2022 | Answered

We are moving and want to take some bulbs with us. How long do I need to wait before digging them up? Do I need to put them in pots? I know if you dig them up before the stalk dies they will get soft and unusable.

You can dig them up and put them in pots, being careful not to disturb the roots and stems, if possible. Then the stem and leaves can die back in the containers.
