4. When can I transplant Star of Bethlehem?

The best time to transplant Star of Bethlehem (Ornithogalum) is in early autumn when the plant is heading towards dormancy. This is because the weather is cooler and the plant is less stressed, which makes it easier to transplant.

The toxin is present in all parts of the plant, including the leaves, flowers, and bulbs. However, the highest concentration of the toxin is found in the bulbs. If you come into contact with the Star of Bethlehem flower, wash the affected area thoroughly with soap and water.
