I have lots of blind daffodils this year and i have noticed the leaves on some seamsort of two tone stripy does anyone know if this could be a virus?


 As you can see not many flowers


 Stripey leaves.

    It could be a virus, it could also be cold damage.  Some of mine came up looking like a concertina, as if they had to struggle out of the ground - definitly cold damage - maybe this is too?  I know of tulip virus but have not come across one that attacks daffodils as well, tho' I guess that is possible.  Grow many different kinds here, some have stripey leaves like that, and seem to be fine - someone else may know more.
