Bulbs are so wonderful. Regardless of what species they are. They will tell YOU when they should be safely tucked away in the soil/compost. Each bulb is in itself a store hous of knowledge. It is a wealth of DNA, plus, it is equipped with sufficient food store to see it on it's way. As soon as you see the tiniest of signs of life, a green tip or a fresh looking strand of root. The bulb is in effect crying out to you, to plant it. OK, perhaps you have missed the printed text of when, where and how to plant. Don't dispair. Perhaps somewhat drastic. Say that you have a hundredweight of daffs still to plant. If need be, for whatever reason time is running out. Just tip them out, cover them over with soil and they will do the rest. Re; Tracey's pics. Should you have any bulbs already showing top growth. Plant them straight awar, but unlike the basic ideal of, planting bulbs twice their depth. Now you have to adjust. With such advanced growth as T's bulbs, you now have to plant no dfeeper than the bulb itself. Thus leaving the top growth above soil level.
