The Q&A Archives: Moving Daffodils

Question: Now that my daffodils' leaves have died back, I would like to move them. Do I dig the bulbs and let them dry for a period of time before planting in the fall?

Answer: Here's the procedure for moving your daffodils. Dig the bulbs, shake off the soil, dry/air them in the sun for a few days, allow them to sit dry in a single layer in an airy cool and shady location such as a garage (not a damp basement), then replant in the fall. Check them periodically over the summer for mold.
