I planted bulbs this past fall in my front yard but am moving now. Can I dig them up and replant them in a pot at my new house?

If you interrupt the growing process, the bulbs may not flower this spring. You might be able to dig them and replant into containers filled with potting soil, as long as you're careful about damaging the roots. It might be easier to just purchase new bulbs for your new home, plant them next fall, and enjoy your flowers there.
