Hi,

My daffodil patch (about 12 years) have never been divided. The last few years has been leaves but no bloom (or very little). I did not divide them after the spring. Is it too late to dig them up and divide them in the next few weeks or should I wait until spring time bloom has ended. We live in the Philadelphia area.

Thank you.

Fall is the time to plant spring blooming bulbs so fall is the time to dig them up and replant.

Here in a colder zone 4, we need to plant daffodils by the first week of October. (Earlier is better.) They are not like tulips, and need to grow some roots before the cold sets in. You in warmer Philadelphia probably have until the end of October.
