Can I move Daffodils now?

Posted by lisa2004 NY Z5/6 (My Page) on

I have them planted where I don't want them. I really don't want to wait for all the foliage to die as they are in the front of my garden. Can I move them with the foliage intact? They just finished blooming. Thanks for any help. Lisa

Yep, I have moved them before at this stage. Just make sure you plant them at teh same depth and they should do great next year.

Oh, and don't feel the need to water them if they look limp. Just leave them be if the soil is not 'dust' dry.

Some vigorous cultivars may not resent this treatment.

I would only do it if I could dig a large root mass.

You can move daffodils at any time. They may not bloom next year if you don't let them die back on their own, but they will recover over time.

I move mine around while they are blooming so I know which are which.
