When dividing daffodil bulbs and breaking off the little bulblets, should I re- plant all of the little bulblets or just the main bulb?

The little bulblets can eventually turn into flowering plants but it can take several years before they mature enough to be able to flower. I tend to toss them rather than wait for years and years for a reward but you can certainly plant yours. Plant them shallowly - only twice as deep as they are wide. Best wishes with your daffodils.
