in the process of digging up ancient gardens here in the hope

i have seen snowdrops, squills, a few crocus & daffs
blooming, but these bulbs are really huge clumps, so maybe
they're too crowded to bloom? anywhere on the web that has
good photos of bulbs? or should i take some pictures & post
them? i'm going to divide & replant as many as possible (i
have a 5 gallon bucketful already & i've only done one 3'x5'
corner...)but i'd like to have some idea which are what so i
know how to place them.
oh, and do astilbe transplant well? i've been moving them to
a temporary garden until i'm done.
