Digging up and transplanting flowers?

Is there a specific time of year that is best for doing this? I've heard it's best in the spring, best in the fall, and even that it doesn't matter. I'm hoping to transplant some lillies if it makes a difference. Thanks!

  • It all depends on the plant. If it's a daylily, my perennial guidebook says that you can divide them or plant them anytime during the growing season since they are so tough. Tough is right; we had some in our backyard that we no longer wanted and it seems like we've had to dig up one or two every year! They just keep coming back! Good luck!

  • Different times for different plants. I don't know for sure, but if I were you I would call up the local plant place and ask them about your specific plants.
