Blind Daffodils


jurgen added on June 17, 2012 | Answered

Daffodils, which have given a good show for nine years, this year the majority came up blind although the leaves looked healthy enough. Should I leave them to try another year, or just dig them up and replace? Regards Brian cooper

This could be due to any number of things. If they did not have sufficent chilling, then their blooming will be poor. If the plants are overcrowded, then blooming will be decreased as well. Light and drainage can be issues as well, but only if nearby trees, etc. have recently changed would this affect you or your neighbor. Finally, the soil could be lacking phosphorus, which is important for flowering. You can mix bone meal in the soil around your plants to add more phosphorus.
