blue grape hyacinths - what to do ?
I have a flower bed along the side of our house that is running rampant with blue grape hyacinths. I didn't plant them myself- they were here when we bought the house. I love them but, they are crowding out any other flowers that I try to plant there, and it's hard to work around the mass of foliage. My idea was to redo the whole flower bed because it is rather a chaotic mess of a little of this & a little of that here & there, and blue grape hyacinths everywhere, even spilling out from the bed onto the grass. I'd like to put all the bg hyacinths in one area, somewhere in the yard where it will compliment them better, but I'm stumped for ideas at the moment ...
So my question is, can I just dig them up now & store them until I get inspired ? Or do I have to wait until fall ? How do I store them ? My great-grandmother used to keep tulip bulbs in a paper bag in the basement. Is it the same way for bg hyacinths ? Should I leave the foliage on or cut it off ?
Thank you !
