Advice for narcissi/daffodil bulbs needed
Fellow gardeners, I'm in a muddle about bulbs and need advice.
1. If you buy daffs reduced price which have finished flowering, what depth should you plant them?
2. What about if they are just about to flower and clearly grown shallowly? Dig them up after flowering and replant deeper?
3. We're advised to deadhead after flowering so energy doesn't go into seed production but back into building up the bulb. What about the wild daffodil though? I've been planting these 'in the green' and don't know if I should deadhead them after flowering?
4. I've been planting groups of narcissi in our woodland garden for the last couple of years, in the autumn. Two years ago I planted a lot, and the following spring they came up and flowered well. THIS year....most were blind!!! What have I done wrong and can I get them to flower again, or should I dig up and discard? I used Bulb Starter to feed them when planting. I'm gutted because I was looking forward to a good display this year.
Any advice on these problems welcome! Thanks in advance! :-)
