The Q&A Archives: relocating jonquils

Question: I have one bunch of jonquils out in middle of yard. would like to move it to another location so it would be easier to mow where they are now. How do you move jonquils? And when is best time to do so?

Answer: The best time is to wait until the foliage has died back and dried up. Then dig up the bulbs, shake off the soil and air dry them for a few days. Store in a single layer in a paper bag or on a shelf in a cool, dark place with good air circulation. Replant them in the fall.
