My oriental lily bulb plants have already been chomped off this spring by some critter. Someone on this forum said that since the growing tip is gone, they will not bloom this season. Can someone tell me how soon I can dig them out and move them somewhere else--like closer to the house where they are less likely to be chewed on? Because if I could do that ASAP maybe I could plant something else in that spot? I know people generally say you move these in the fall, but has anyone done this earlier and been successful? Thanks for your advice!
If I did what the lily wanted me to, I would wait a month after it got chopped off to transplant. But it's not that important, and if I had reason to (like you do), I would go ahead and transplant now.
