I forgot to plant these Daffodil bulbs and they are going on regardless. Should I plant them now or wait for fall?! Located in NE Kansas. Thank you!

plant them now.
I don't think they'd last till fall. Now, they will grow and hav leaves until May or June, giving them time to rebuild some.
They should flower now, but might not flower well next yeat.

I agree Now

Me too! I agree The roots need food. They probably will bloom this year since the flowers are feeding from last years food storage. When they're done flowering cut off the faded blooms and feed right away so the plant has the rest of the time before fading to eat.

When I was a kid my mom would let me plant the daffodil bulbs but she never told me she fed them every year. So when I grew up and planted my bulbs I wondered why they didn't do well in the following years. I didn't want to ask her cuz how could I admit I was a failure? *Blush*
