Just mowing my lawn and noticed a distinctly bad smell coming from tubs with daffs in. Closer inspection, I noticed the Crown Imperials which I planted two autumns ago (September 2011) are finally growing. Can't believe it. I'd given them up for dead when nothing appeared at all last year. Can't believe they smell so bad though :-/ Not sure if I will get flowers though. All I've got currently is lots of green leaves. I do remember reading they can take couple of years to flower.
