Snow drops like to be moved “in the green”, or right after the flowers have died. I wondered what other bulbs might do well this way. I have moved daffodils that needed to be thinned out this way, and they have done very well, though the bloom the first year is scanty.
I have tons of scilla that need thinning out. Major problem in waiting till they die down is finding them in the fall. Has anyone ever moved scilla “in the green”?
I haven’t moved Scilla, but I imagine it would be fine moved this way. As Margaret explains in moving bulbs the main danger of moving ‘in the green’ is of breaking the leaves and thus removing the source of food to the bulb. Scilla is small enough that it should be easy to move with out breaking off much, if any foliage.
