Can I move my amaryllis in summer?

Q. I have amaryllis bulbs planted in my garden. They never become fully dormant even in winter, but they bloom okay every spring. I need to move some of them. Can I move them even though the leaves are still green?

A. Yes, you can move your amaryllis (Hippeastrum) even in summer. I suggest you dig up as much of the soil around them as possible to avoid disturbing the roots. Dig another hole the same size at the site where you intend to transplant them, then carefully drop the root ball in the empty hole. Water well when complete. You shouldn't have any problems.
