Can I move asiatic lily, gladiolus, and dahlia???

Hi all, I am new to bulb planting and have some questions. I plants asiatic lily bulbs, dahlia tubers, and gladiolus corms about a week and a half ago, I would like to move them. Since they should be in their growing cycle would it hurt them and cause them not to bloom? I live in pho by the way, which is in zone 6. Thanks for your help!!

Ordinarily, you would not want to disturb them at this point, but 10 days is not a long time. They will not yet be very well rooted in where they are. So if you really have to, go ahead, just be as gentle as you can and take a bunch of soil around the bulb or corm.
