When does spring bulb folliage die?

Posted by valtorrez MO (My Page) on

I would like to replant bulbs that were planted by previous owner due to the area these are in I want to plant daylillies. Currently all folliage has grown up and I now have hycinthas and daffodils. When can I move these bulbs? Is there a certain time/way to replant because they currently look like little bouquets and I kind of want to keep this look?

I usually replant mine late spring early summer before the garden gets too stuffed with perennials.
Wouldn't it be easier for you to just leave them there and plant Daylilies among the bulbs? The Daylily foliage will hide spring bulb foliage while it stores more nutrients for next season.

That just might work. I will take out only a couple of bulbs so that they will not interfere with the Dl's growth.

I have daylilies and bulbs planted together on purpose.

If you have room leave the daffoldils and plant daylilies around them. This way you have two flower shows for the price of one. The daffs in the early spring and in that same gardenbed, daylilies in the summer.
