It usually takes about 3 weeks for the leaves to turn yellow and then brown. Once they are completely yellow they have done their work and you can cut them away from the bulb then dig and replant your bulbs. The bulbs will be dormant by the time the leaves turn completely yellow. When you replant, plant each bulb about twice as deep as it is wide. Best wishes with your transplanting project!
