Hi - I have lived in this house for 12 years and over the past few years the bulbs - planted by the previous owner a keen gardener have failed to flower- they could be quite old- should I pull them - move them save them ? Help would be appreciated Thank you

You can make new ones from the seeds of the old ones.

Good luck!!

That will be difficult as Sandra said they don't flower 

 

Sandra, have you ever fed them or watered them?  Do you do anything to them?

Now to give you a proper answer-I am guessing these are daffodils and such like?

If they haven't flowered for a number of years -it means they are probably overcrowded and need lifting splitting and replanting-you could do that now with the leaves intact-do not remove those let them die back naturally and add some nourishment to the soil

With luck they should flower again next year

A lot of mine need a good split up and feed. Will they get it? one day perhaps.

I had two pots of daffodils that failed to flower last year.  Gave them two or three feeds of liquid seaweed last spring, before the leaves died down, and this year they are fantastic.  Will now make feeding my bulbs a regular thing .... one of the things on my list for tomorrow morning actually !

Thank you- mostly hyacinths- Yes I do look after my garden- one day I would like to be  a gardener rather than someone who gardens!- I have success with most of the things I plant- I am learning what the garden likes- I will try splitting and re- planting - thank you so much

Your bulbs may well have split themselves into bulblets if they're hyacinths. These can do with spacing out and, as already said, a good feed to help them along.

I'm a great believer in feeding bulbs - my garden is crowded, and the soil can't support all of the things there without some serious help.
