They'll survive whatever you do to them.

and if you move them to somewhere else they'll still be there because you never get them all

I wouldn't mix them, these little tulips come from hot dry areas, daffs like something damper. Also, you won't see the tulips for daff leaves

Both L pileata and L. nitida are known as Box Honeysuckle. Make sure you get Lonicera pileata. Lonicera nitida is tall, straggly and comparatively dull in leaf

My mum moved house 4 years ago and moved hers with her.  She had no flowers for 3 years then a big bloomlast year.  I was informed they sulk when moved. 

See original post

 Mine didn't sulk but your mum's was probably out of the ground longer if she was moving house

which are brown, the flowers or the leaves? 

Flowers don't last long and go brown when their time is over

Brown leaves is more serious

I think it needs planting out. They don't mind being moved, that's one of many gardening myths. If that's not possible, a bigger pot on its own

Underground wasps' nest

how big are the trees? Anything more than a tiny sapling would be unaffected by a wasps' nest, they're not that big and don't expel poisons. Only humans do that.

what are the trees? can we see a photo?

the roots of those are thick and wide spreading. If it's got to move, get as much root as you can, stake it firmly, keep it moist but don't drown it.

If I was doing that, I'd do it now before the leaves come on.

They can be hard pruned to produce huge leaves but never a beautiful shaped tree again.

High risk operation. I fear disappointment
