The Q&A Archives: daffodil and hyicanth

Question: both of these bulbs are growing well but the daffodil hardly get any blooms, and the hyicanth only get a few followers per stem. Is there some thing I am not doing?

Answer: They like growing in full sunshine and if they are over crowded they mail fail to bloom well. They won't bloom well if you remove the foliage before it dies down naturally. So if your bulbs have been in the ground for more than 3 years they may be overcrowded. You can dig them up and space them a little farther apart after the leaves die down on their own. Extra space means less competition for water, nutrients and light. Hope this helps!
