Moving daffodils

Postby woodfloorpete » May 01, 2008 1:40 pm

I want to move my daffodils this year to reconfigure my garden for the summer. They have flowered and the flowers are almost gone. Will I hurt them by moving them too soon? Thanks for the help.

If you dig them up now with all the foliage/ bulbs/roots intact, and relocate them, they will be fine.

I agree....if you don't want to worry about roots and such..just wait till they start to go yellow and just dig em up...you really don't need to worry too much about them then.
