Blind daffodils

What do folks do with daffs in pots that come through blind?
I hate throwing plants away!

    Plant them out in the garden and feed them so they can grow healthy bulbs for next year.

    If that's not an option, divide them into fresh pots of compost and give them a liquid feed as well as a slow release feed so the foliage can build better bulbs for next year.

    If that's not an option, feed them.  Planting composts only have food for 90 days so your bulbs will be so undernourished they can't grow a flower bud.

    It's possible that because they were in pots, they weren't planted deep enough. I'd suggest planting them out in the garden at at least twice the depth of the bulb.
