Does anyone know when and a good way of transplanting established daffodils?

I have a few clumps that I want to move and place them where i dont park my car and where they will be seen

    I just dig them up with a good bit of soil around them and plonk them in where I want them.

    When they have finished flowering-do it then-and let them die back in the usual wayimage

    Or that then, but if you are going to drive over them I would risk it now to keep the flowers

    Cheers guys, 

    I haven't been driving over them, we are going to digging it up so we don't have to park on mud anymore.

  • Buy new ones next September...they are relatively cheap to buy and are guaranteed to flower at least once. The ones you move might fail and come up "blind" i.e. leaves, no flowers.
