Can I move bulbs now?

I've just started to dig out a border that will be having a major face lift as we have to put in new trellis panels and remove some old electric lighting. I've noticed some hyacinth and some other bulbs have appeared and wondered if they would be ok to transplant as they are in the way of the work that needs doing or should I just did them up ?

Would appreciate a fast answer as I'm up to my eyes in muck and bullets here ! image

Thanks, Jean. image

    If you're careful they can usually be got out with a clump of soil, replanted and they won't notice.

    Great, Thanks Nut.  image  Be a shame to get rid of them.

    I you have a spot ready then move them-it might affect  the flowering though for this year -completely wrong time and all that-see what happens-preferable to throwing them out.
