I want to kill my daffodils!

Is it too late to spray off and kill my daffodils? 

I do like daffodils, but I want to plant a low clipped evergreen hedge where they are currently infesting (between a log roll edging to the lawn and the wall), and I don't want leaves pushing up through it next year!

    So ... digging them up is not an option?

    Of course it is. It would be my second option though! ;)

    It would be my first.  Just sayin'! image

    Can you donate them to a village in bloom type of organisation who might want to send volunteers to come and dig them up and replant in verges/public spaces?

    Not really, but.... I could put them in pots for next year now you mention it. 

    If I miss any (I'm bound to) they're getting sprayed next year though!

    Bet they go slimey!  image  There's always the potential for slime with daffs and I bet if you spray 'em that's what they do!

    You will be digging that bit anyway if you are going to put a hedge in so just chuck the daff bulbs in a bin when you unearth them.

    I mowed mine down this week. I reckon less than 1% flowered.

    They're planted in the grass along the drive. ( before our time here ) and they look naff.
