Answer: You can transplant them while they are growing or blooming if you do it carefully. Prepare the new planting area ahead of time and water the bulbs the day before you move them. Dig them up, keeping as much of the surrounding soil as possible intact so that you have not only the bulb itself, but also the root system around and beneath it. Replant immediately into prepared soil and water them in. If you have taken enough of the root ball, they won't even know they've been moved.
