      Hiya Paul
      Plant them out in May or after. :)
      (Lily of the Valley is worth a fortune down here....or at least it was a couple of years back. The famous Flora Day in Helston Cornwall relies on lots of these but two years back, for some reason, there was a shortage for the occasion)

        Hi there @Verdun, how are you?

        Please can you tell me if now is the time to move them.....my Dad has loads so I want to add some to bulk up my dismal collection.

          Hello Upsy.....I'm fine. Hope you are too :). Keeping out of mischief I hope!! :snorky:
          I would wait a while longer......until soil is a little warmer and they should settle well.
