The Q&A Archives: Moving Bulbs in the Spring

Question: This is the first spring in our house (zone 5). I found bulbs coming up (about 4 inches) in the middle of a couple of shrubs on the east side of our property. Is it ok to carefully dig them up and move them? The bulbs are approximately 1/2" in diam. Pam Morton, IL

Answer: Wait until the bulbs have flowered and the foliage has completely died back before you dig them up to move them.
