Spring bulbs

Hello Everyone, 
I planted some daffodil bulbs late October and I noticed they started sprouting just before the new year. They have now grown quite a bit now. I'm sure the weather will get much colder before "proper" spring arrives will this kill the flowers? Is there something I should do to protect them? Thank you

    They’ll be just fine - they can cope with icy weather very well 👌🏻

    Yes - they just slow down a bit when it gets colder. They're totally hardy, and used to varying conditions. In warmer areas they'll certainly be a bit further on.

    Enjoy them when they flower   :)

    I've often seen them flattened by snow too JenniB83 and they spring back when it's gone.
