The joys of Spring

TeTe Posts: 193
The latter part of last year we spent a couple of days planting our daffodil bulbs we had purchased, in total we purchased over a thousand bulbs to plant in and around ours gardens, it took us a couple of days but we persevered until all our bulbs were happily planted in their own individual holes, over the past week we have certainly noticed more and more that have begun to open up.

  • This is a huge amount of work—well done you! It’ll look amazing this spring.

    Thanks @Cambridgerose12 , Yes it certainly took a good few days to complete but wearing of the knee pads was a life saver, obviously I would hope the bulbs eventually multiply over the years giving a bigger and better show each year

    That will look lovely you must have a huge garden to allocate so much space to just daffodils. Lucky you!

    Daffodils are one of my favourite flowers. So bright, vibrant and cheerful after a long winter. I hope all your hard work pays off and you get a good show of flowers.

    Really lovely, hope you can post a photo later. I am very envious as I have lost the few daffs I had to narcissus bulb fly and I am uncertain whether to put more in this year.
