We are changing the layout of our terrace which will necessitate the raising of an adjoining flower bed by two to three feet. The bed has Lilly of the Valley flowers in it. I am wondering whether to dig up the Lilly of the Valley roots, or to leave them in the ground so that they may eventually find their way to the top and then continue to produce flowers in years to come? Thank you for your advice.

Welcome!

You will have to dig them up and replant. They will never find their way through 2 - 3 ft of extra soil.
