Answer: The foliage is supplying nutrients for the bulb to store for next year's growth and flowering. That's why it's recommended to always let the foliage on bulbs die back naturally. Since transplanting is always a shock, it could interfere with the nutrient storage and next year's growth. I'd wait until the foliage dies back naturally, if possible, but if you must transplant now, try to keep the foliage growing. Good luck!
