Transplanting Daffodils

Question:

I would like to dig up some daffodils and re-plant them somewhere else. What is the best time of year to do that; now or in the fall?

Answer:

If you have daffodils that are in need of relocating, spring is a good time to transplant them. Because the foliage is visible you will have no trouble locating them in the ground. Just remember the name of the game here is to keep the leaves green as long as possible to recharge the bulb for next year's flower. For the best results, wait about eight weeks after the blooms have faded to move your daffodils. When you do move them, take care not to do damage to the bulb, and make sure that the bulb and foliage stay intact.
