Hi all,

Now would do for transplanting Lycoris bulbs.  If they are blooming, you 
could at least find them!

Lycoris chinensis, sprengeri, and longituba are in bloom now.  L. 
caldwellii is about to bloom.  All these are spring-growing, so they can be 
transplanted any time between ca. July and January, depending on your 
climate.  I never disturb them when they are in leaf, so I flag the 
location of the bulbs I want to move, either when they are in leaf or when 
they are in bloom.  I prefer to move these Lycoris in September or October.

Be careful to preserve as many roots on each bulb as possible.
