Yes you read this right. Grandpa Bob needed a transplant this afternoon. It was done and over in an hours time maybe and seems like things are normal and will be good as well. I am talking about my Lily's. They've needed to be moved for years. Today was so warm and sunny I got the gardening bug bad and transplanted a lot of lilies. I do not know if they will blossom this spring or not, but the bulbs were intact and I hope they do blossom. Have you transplanted any flowers or bushes etc lately? HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

They should be ok Grandpa Bob. You've moved them early enough. I haven't transplanted much lately, but then I hardly need to because the birds are my little helpers there. lol. Brightest Blessings my friend.

A few flowers need to be transplanted early spring as soon as the ground thaws. Most flowers they say wait till after they are done blooming before moving them. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

I tended to move mine when I thought the time was right. I moved peonies from the bottom of the garden up to the top and they've thrived and grown profusely up there. Also, against advice, I moved the Leylandi hedging from close to the top fence, to the side of the garden between myself and my neighbour. That is now a very tall, beautiful dividing hedge. Flowers, I always move in Spring, about March is a good time here.

Hi GRANDPA BOB, Nope I haven't but you have greenfingers so whatever you touch and transplant, it will grow and bloom, you have got that touch and you are loving and caring for your plants so they will give you back the pleasure of growing andd blooming so you can look at them with pleasure and love.

Last Spring, I did some landscaping and did not replace or moved any of the bulbs that were already there. Now the front is growing so unrudly. So, this Spring the tulip are about to blossom but I'm not sure if I should wait til they blossom or should I do it now.

I have been wanting to transplant these lilies for a couple years now too. I'd say with tulips, wait till they are done blooming as they bloom so early. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

No I have not, but I need to. I am having a hard time deciding where to put some hibiscus that my dad dug up for me last fall. They have been in a bucket, sheltered on my porch. I also have a lot of iris that were given to me for free, they just need transplanted as well.

I hope so. I've read that when they get transplanted they don't bloom the first year due to shock. So we shall see. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

Glad you are feeling better after your transplant. But I bet tomorrow you will not feel as well as you do today. hahahaha That is good you got something done that you have been wanting to do for a while now.

Yes, we just transplanted the sego palm from this pot to my dads flowerbed on Easter sunday. I also transplanted two other plants into bigger pots. They needed more room to grow. Two have flowers on them and all the other ones are tropical and they are looking very happy.

I have never transplanted flowers or a bush before. I would be afraid of messing it up and chopping up the roots or something. I hope your transplant will prove to be a success in the coming months.

Unfortunately we live in a Condo and cannot have any flowers, and such like this, as we have no where we can put them, but if I did have an area I am sure it is something I would consider from time to time. I am sure these will all work out for you, and it is nice to see you have had nice enough weather to be able to do this.

That is nice to hear that is wasn't you. I need to plant my tulips and was wondering if I can just put them in the ground and leave then alone. What do you think. Your friend onlydia

Yes grandpa,we transplanted some new buds into aluminum sausage cans, from a healthy barrel cactus mama. I think it grows fatter than using the terra cota pots. The fatter the cactus, the more chances that it would grow flowers. That's my transplant this sunday.
