You can actually buy "pot feet" at garden centres, which will raise the pot about an inch from the ground, which should help.

And a warm hello to you too, FloBear

I've lost count of how many ex-BBC folk have arrived here now - does anyone have an up to date number?

I think you could store them happily in slightly moist compost. Unlike tulips, daffodils don't really enjoy being dried off every year. Would it not be possible to leave them in tubs and put the tubs somewhere out of view for the rest of the year?

I've only just logged on today, and it's taken me ages to catch up!

Hello to everyone new

What's the weather like in your area?

Absolutely tipping it down in North Yorks today. Back roads are more like causeways, the river is about to break its banks and part of my front garden is under water.

This is one wet drought!

Lucky you - it's thrown it down all day here.

Mind you, we are officially in drought, so I shouldn't complain

The only thing that you can really do is leave them and see what happens. With a bit of luck you will get fresh shoots in a few weeks' time.

Begonia tubers - they should be started indoors, just under the surface of some compost; now is a good time. Pot on when they have produced shoots, and harden off before planting in their final positions when all danger of frost has passed.
