Transplanting Bulbs

Can I dig up bulbs in the spring without harming them so that I can replant them in the fall? I am trying to move some flower gardens and plant grass where they used to be, but I missed quite a few bulbs when I took the plants out.

For best results wait until the leaves start to yellow. This allows the leaves to produce the energy the bulbs need for a good flower show next year. You can plant the bulbs in their new location right away. This way they can spend the summer safely tucked into the soil like your other bulbs. Transplanting right away also reduces the risk you will misplace the bulbs or forget to plant them in fall. Otherwise store the bulbs in a cool dark location for the summer and plant in fall when you normally plant hardy bulbs.
