Daffodils are sprouting too early!

Can anyone give me some insight in what to do when this happens? Do I leave them or cut them down? image

    Leave them. It is going cold this weekend, they will slow down then.


  • Ok I'll leave them thanks Fidgetbones
  • I always expect to see the daffs showing by Christmas, at least in the warmest spots, and I'm in the chilly (and wet and windy!)North. It's what keeps me going through Jan and Feb!

  • Thanks everyone for your kind responses I guess I may get a couple of early blooms! (Hopefully) and I'm in the South East where it's still surprisingly mild? image

    Snowdrops are in flower at Kew, in the rock garden.

  • Really are they? Isn't it too early or is because of how mild it is image

    Yes, it's because the weather has been mild - they're hardy and they'll slow down when the weather cools.

    I still have foxgloves flowering which is unusual, some roses, not so unusual but my jasmine is flowering and that is definitely wrong.  Going to take some plants up to the greenhouse this week. I have a feeling it might be about to get cold

    went to look if snowdrops popping up but no sign yet
