Can you transport bulbs while they are in bloom?

Someone told me I could come get some bulbs but they are blooming.

To move bulbs while they are blooming, dig up a large clump of soil with the bulbs. Do not let the bulbs or roots dry out before you replant them. Water the plants well for a few days afterwards to allow the them time to become established.

Yes, you can transport them but you know what this may affect their overall growth. I don't think will be a very good thing for your flowers. So in this light you may not want to transport them but if it is important for some show case or event then go ahead.

Yes you can transport bulbs when they are in bloom. You will want to make sure that you transfer as much of the original soil that surrounded the bulb as possible. Be careful and gently whilr transporting the bulbs so you do not mess up the blooms. They should come back every year afterwards.

You need to transport the bulbs in dirt, let then die, cut off the stalk after it is dried, plant the bulbs in the fall and they will come next season.

It's not recommended to move them once blooming. Some say if you do, you should dig around the roots and pick it up with the dirt without exposing the roots.
