second year daffodils not coming up
Hello, Last January and February (late for planting daffodils), I planted around 700 daffodils, as a school project. They came up, bloomed, and were pretty. Now, this Spring, we anxiously awaited their arrival. Many did not come up? I planted them at the appropriate depth, no rodents, plenty of water, in direct sun, not too much water to make them rot, so I am concerned. Could they still come up next year? (Year 3)

Yes, sometimes they will skip a year. Especially if they were stressed. Planting can do this. If you do not see flowers the 3rd year, then I would look into fertilizing them.
BushDoctor, would it help to fertilize them now?
