Q.Why Daffodils Haven’t Flowered
Many of my daffodils haven’t appeared at all. This is apparently the same in my neighbor’s garden. Others have come up but the majority are blind. Mine have been there for quite a few years but my neighbor’s were planted 2 years ago. We always let them die back naturally, never cut them early. What is happening?

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.
