What do you do to replant a pot of daffodils or hyacinths, do you let the soil get dry?

Asked by Atti (346points) February 13th, 2011

I have two potted plants, hyacinth and daffodils given to me
for my birthday. Now that they have bloomed, what steps do I take to be able to plant them outside? Do I keep watering them or let
the soil get dry. When can I plant them outside?

I would say no to letting them dry out. Water them thoroughly so the soil will hold together for transplanting. Transplant as much of the original soil as you can and make sure you dig the hole large enough to accommodate the root ball (or bulb ball, in this case). You may also want to put some good grade fertilizer in the hole before planting, or you can use some mushroom compost to boost the blooms.
