The Q&A Archives: Daffodils

Question: About 3 years ago, I planted quite a few daffodils, the type recommended for naturalizing. They grew and bloomed the first two years, but this year, I have lots of green, but no flowers! Any ideas??? Thanks!

Answer: There may be several reasons for this. One is that they are growing in too much shade or in very poor soil and have lost some vigor. Another possible cause is that they have not been allowed to fully ripen and mature their foliage. This ugly process is what rebuilds the bulbs from year to year. Another possibility is that they have in fact become crowded already and need to be lifted and divided.
