The Q&A Archives: Daffodils and tulips coming up early

Question: Due to our warm winter, many of my daffodil and tulip bulbs are coming up in mid February. What can I do to protect them if we finally get some real winter weather Renee Teich South Orange, NJ

Answer: I wouldn't worry about your daffodils coming up early. They will stall where they are until real warm weather onf spring hits. Until then, if you are still concerned you can mulch the bed with hay or straw about 4 thick. That will keep it cool in the soil and pervent any more growth until it's time.
