When to replant bulbs? - Knowledgebase Question

St. Charles, MI
Question by hemker

I have just dug up my old daffodils and tulips and want to replant them. They have already blumbed this year. Can I do it now (june) or do I have to wait until this fall. If so how do I store them?

I was told they should be dug up and replanted every few years. I never did that.
Thanks, Pat

You can replant them now. The purpose of digging and replanting is so you can reposition them so they have adequate room for the roots to grow. Just set them back in the ground and they'll be happy all summer and winter and will grow for you again new spring. Enjoy!
