Digging up lilies and overwintering them
Hi, I have a bit of a problem. My granddaughter, Summer, age 7 is quite a gardener (thanks to her Nanny). Unfortunately she and her parents are moving away sometime in November. She is worried about her lilies more than anything and she asked me if I could save them for her and bring them to her new home in the spring. I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia so needless to say it gets very cold here in the winter. If I dig them up late in the fall, and replant them in my garden will they be alright? I have heard that if I do that they may heave up out of the ground through the winter.
Is there anyone out there who can help us?
Sure would appreciate it.
