I know I to leave the leaves until they die down. Now that I have a better idea of all the plants in our yard, where/what they are, when they bloom, etc. I would like to do some rearranging so I don't have plants coming up on top of each other while empty spots sit nearby. Thanks!

My house came with dozens of varieties of daffodils and other narcissus, most growing in
inconvenient or inconspicuous places. After 8 years of dividing and transplanting bulbs, I've settled on a simple method: wait until leaves die down, then dig up the clumps. I separate different varieties of bulbs in plastic nursery pots and label for identification, then simply leave them outdoors until I'm ready to plant them over the next few months. Similar to Atlanta, central Mississippi fall and winter months allow ample time to garden. If I notice bulbs sprouting in the pots early spring, I accept that as reminder to finish planting.
