The Q&A Archives: Daffodils That Do Not Bloom

Question: I have several clumps of daffodiles that have bloomed every year for the last 7 or 8 years. This year we have lots of leaves but no blooms. I have not done anything different to these bulbs in the last 8 years. I have other daffodiles in my yard and they are just fine...any ideas as to why many would not bloom this year.

Answer: After this length of time, I would suspect the bulbs have multiplied greatly and become very crowded and need to be lifted and divided. You can do this now if you replant them at the same depth and water them in well.
