I had loads of blind daffs last year, I put it down to the weather the year before. I left them in situ and fingers crossed this will be a better year for them
I am new to gardening as I only moved into a property with a garden last year. We had an abundance of daffs last year - but this year it's just the leaves which are in abundance again - but no flowers. Which i'm told is blind daffs. I've looked everywhere online and no-one seem to tell me what to do with them. Do I leave them all summer until they die off and then cutt them down, or should I dig the bulbs up when the leaves have died and buy new bulbs ready for next year?
Couldnt work out what the wonderful smell was in my front garden. Hyacinths. Doh. They are looking really beautiful this year.
Let the daffs die down naturally, this lets the goodness go back into the bulbs. Remove leaves when they have died off. Are the bulbs planted deep enough?
Mmm Hyacinths! lovely. bought some in Morrisons for £1 and kept them around the house this spring, house smells fab and will plant them out when they die down
Hi Sam13 try this link for looking after your daffodils. Good luck
I have a better display of Daffs this year which may be down to last year's wet, wet, wet. So it's probably a good idea to let them have some water if the summer is dry. It probably helps flower bud formation in late summer.
