You should let the plants go dormant by themselves before digging and storing. In my climate I never dig daffodils unless I want to move or divide them. Al

RE: digging up potted bulbs

Yes like Calistoga said You will want to let them go dormant and wait until all the leaves have turned yellow and dried up because thats the best time so they can build up energy. then it's ok to dig them up!
