Anyone have tips on transplanting groundnuts?

I think that treating them like bulbs is the way to go... planting in early spring or fall at least a couple inches deep.
They seem to like wet, sandy areas, and don't mind partial shade. Mine are just getting set to bloom now. I've found them naturally growing here in Maine along streams and roadside culverts.

I have done it. It is easy. Larry sent me the first ones that I grew in a window box last year then planted to a raised bed. They did bloom this year. (Thanks again, Larry!) I planted many others and they all seemed to grow just fine except those that were stolen by animals. I know places to get a lot of bulbs so I will continue to transplant them. The flowers are beautiful and good to eat. Some people are allergic to the bulbs. Not me. I like them.

To quote Ron Popiel "set it and forget it." The beauty of wild plants.......

BTW, mine seem to do OK in sun or shade.
