Before I knew any better, I dug up daff bulbs and moved them while the leaves were still green. I got many leaves this year but no blooms. What do I need to do so that they will bloom next year. I hope they can be saved.

Hang in there! Your bulbs are fine so long as the leaves are growing. The premature transplanting interrupted their ability to store enough energy in the bulb to produce blooms. Feed them with a standard flower fertilizer or rich compost, and as long as they are getting a reasonable amount of sun (6 hours), they should bloom next year. Best of luck!
