Yes, you may move a three-year-old Crepe Myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica) that has not ever bloomed.

Specifically, the best time to transplant is in October. Fall lends itself to transplanting any plant because the gardener and the plant are not dealing with the heat, light and moisture extremes of summer. The plant needs time to adjust to new surroundings. The adjustment tends to work best during the time that the plant is not actively growing.

In transplanting, it is important to do a soil analysis of the previous and the new sites. It also is important to inspect the underground parts of the shrub. The lack of a bloom may be due to natural, biological processes within the crepe myrtle or to problems within the roots or soil.

How do you kill a crepe myrtle?

Honestly, I don't think you can. I have dug up roots and even hacked away with an axe at the ones I could not dig up. They keep sprouting anyway. The darn bush was never very lively to begin with, but I think hacking away the roots must have given it a boost, because it now has more growth then it ever had before. I just keep mowing the sprouts down and hope the roots will die. If you figure out how to kill one, please repost...

How do you store the forced bulbs after they have bloomed indoors and replant them in the spring?

Plant them out after flowering and allow them to die down naturally. Forced bulbs never flower well the second year they are better grown naturally out doors in future years to let them recover.
