I've actually planted daffodil bulbs at Xmas and had good results ...........whilst it is probably preferable to plant earlier, you can still get good results with later planting.
Some recommended "planting " times can be a bit limited........ just a good guide generally but depends on where you are
Through a slight 'oversight', I had a half-net of daffodil bulbs lurking in my unheated garage until yesterday - I planted them in a dozen or so black flower-buckets (ex-florist), along with some 'fresh' lily bulbs I'd had from Parks just last week. More in hope than expectation, I've watered them up and stood them alongside the greenhouse in a sunny spot. I'll let you know how they fare over the coming weeks, and months...?
That's not late David, that's early for next year
How about this for an idea then?? Taken the week before last, most are still in the bag and some are even flowering, a whole new type of air plant (They will be going in the garden at some point!!)
I planted my daffodils November last year and now i have beautiful yellow periscopes (oldchippy's words) about 30cm tall. I watched Garden's World program last year, where Monty told how to plant daffodils, and done exactly what he told... in result i have beautiful daffs
Thanks for your consoling thoughts, Nutc! I make that I'm about 8-10 months ahead of myself with bulb planting - guess I can now relax (just for a wee while?).
Mike, thank you or that info about adjusting the planting depth. No matter how carefully I store my bulbs there are always a few sprouting the following year. Now I know what to do - always something to learn about gardening. So much on the different threads.
