Is it to early to start digging and transplanting lilies and other bulbs to new locations?

Lilies never really stop growing, so you can move them virtually anytime. Wait until they're finished blooming, then carefully dig, divide if necessary, and replant. Set smaller bulbs 3-4 inches deep and larger bulbs 4-6 inches deep. Water well and mulch area with 2-3 inches of organic matter. Most other bulbs can be dug after the foliage has died down, usually in the fall months, and transplanted to new locations.
