I have masses of lily of the valley growing everywhere and would like to move most of it. Does anyone know if I can just dig it up and dry it and plant it again next spring, or do I have to put it in pots? Any advice gratefully received! pbf.
I'd go with that. You CAN (if you must) dig up the crowns in late autumn and dry them, but you'll have at least a 50% failure rate. And if you've ever bought a dried crown and tried to get it going again, you'll know that it can take up to three years to even see a sign of it. Yes - best keep them going in pots.
