The Q&A Archives: Relocating Dafodils

Question: I have some dafodils in different locations on my property and would like to relocate them to new locations. Can I dig them up and replant while they are blooming or should I wait until blooms are gone.

Answer: I have had good luck moving them before bloom, in bloom and after bloom as long as I dug a generous root ball with all the roots, replanted them immediately at the same depth and watered them in to settle the soil and eliminate air pockets.
