Question re Transplanting Tulips

Hello, last summer I had a new sidewalk and porch built in front of my house along with a new flower bed. In the fall I planted bulbs of hyacinth, daffodils and tulips. They are blooming nicely, except for the daffodils (which is the subject for another post). In my bcak yard, there is a mound of earth which the contractor dug up from the front.

which must have been from the old flower bed. I'd like to move these tulips to the front of the house to "join" the others.
My question is: can I safely transplant the tulips now while they are blooming? Or, is it better to wait until they're done, remove the bulbs and re-plant in the fall? What's the best way to store the bulbs until planting time?
Many thanks. Denny

After the foliage has died down this summer or early fall would be the best time to move the tulips.

It would probably be best to dig them after the leaves have yellowed s you can find them which is about 6 weeks after bloom. Dig deep and wid so you don't stab them. You can plant them immediately where you wan them.

This is not the best time, that would be in late summer when the foliage is gone. However if you can get a full spit of soil with the plant and it's roots intact you might get away with moving them now, do it during a rainy day or two.
