I have a huge old Horse Chestnut tree at the front of my property under which are old plantings of Hosta and Lily of the Valley. Last fall I planted about 150 Sir Winston Churchill narcissi (is that spelled right?) under the tree as well as some Muscari. I want to continue to develop this bed (when it becomes a bed) by planting more bulbs and perennials. The problem is that the entire area is carpeted with literally hundreds of Lily of the Valley. Kind of nice for about two weeks but impossible to keep the area weeded. I hate to just rip these out. Can they be successfully moved at this time of year? Should I even bother to try to save them? Am I just being a garden wimp? So many questions.
