When can I dig up Stargazers?

socksJuly 10, 2012

I put 3 stargazers in a sunny spot, they grew and bloomed, but they looked fried. It was too hot for them. When should I dig them up to move them, now after the stalks die down? Then put in a cool, dry, dark place, replant in winter or spring?

I'm in So. CA.

If you are careful, you can dig any time after flowering - just avoid damage to either the bulbs or the root system.
Replant immediately - lily bulbs never go fully dormant and they don't store well out of the ground. The only reason I wouldn't replant immediately is if you needed to prechill lilies in your climate.

Thank you. We need to prechill tulips here, but I don't think for lilies. I'm glad I asked because I probably would have stored them.
