Fritillaria meleagris
« on: March 25, 2022, 09:34:04 PM »
Is it possible to move fritillaria meleagris whilst in flower. I have quite a few in my garden and will be moving very shortly and would like to take some of them with me.

Since it is sold as a Spring-planted bulb, I would think you could probably move it safely.
Wrap the bulbs and roots in damp paper towels. At worst you might loose bloom for a year or two.
You are not likely to kill them.  And you will probably not loose any bloom seasons.

I am in USDA zone 8b where temperatures almost never fall below 15F  -9.4C.  Rainfall 50"+  but none  June-+September.  We seldom get snow; but when it comes we get 30" overnight.  soil is sandy loam with a lot of humus.  Oregon- where Dallas is NNW of Phoenix.
