|Last fall I planted about 60 bulbs of daffodils that we had in a bag. (This bag was in our garage for about a year because the fall before we couldn't plant them) Now that is Spring, the plant came out but there are no flowers. Could you please tell me if because I planted them too late the

|Bulbs have the beginnings of a flower already inside. All they need is to be planted in the soil and receive enough water to keep them happy. After spending an entire year in a mesh bag, I'm surprised any of them survived! Now that they are in the ground, they'll need at least another year to build up strength so they can flower. At this point, leave them alone and allow the foliage to wither and die back naturally. The leaves will transport energy to the bulbs for next year's flower display. Most of them should flower for you next year. Enjoy!
