Can I store and replant the allium buds I had to dig up?
Due to utility work, I had to dig up a section of my garden. I have many allium that were budded and close to bloom. Is there a way to save these until fall to replant?

Sorry, but it really is now or never. If your allium bulbs are that close to blooming, they need to be in the ground to grow. Success with transplanting the bulbs while they are ready to bloom will be questionable, but if you will lose the bulbs anyway, you might try growing them in containers with potting soil. Allow them to bloom out. Keep the foliage actively growing until it dies down naturally. Next fall, plant the bulbs in your new garden. Expect the bulbs to take several years to recover from this drastic treatment.
