I am growing pots of daffodils for table decorations for my wedding at the very beginning of April. After last year's very cold weather, I thought this would be fine. However, it's been so mild this winter, in fact we've only had our 3rd frost this morning, that they are already an inch out of the soil and growing like billy-o! Is there any way (aside from putting them in the fridge - does this work by the way?!) I can at least slow them down a little bit? I've currently put them in the dark, cold shed at the bottom of the garden, but am not convinced that will work... Roughly how many weeks does it take for daffs to flower after they've come out of the ground?
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated or we may have to resort to growing some other yellow flowers for the tables!
