|I just got a free box of daffodil bulbs. |
I don't think the leaves had completely yellowed before the bulbs were pulled, so I don't think this is the best time to be transplanting them, but they were free!
Do you have any tips on planting them in April? Anything I should be doing to make sure they survive this summer and actually bloom next year?

|Honestly, I have no idea. I have never heard of planting daffs in April. But never have gotten daffs with folliage either. I guess if they are free bulbs you don't have much to loose.|

|I have transplanted daffodils in the springtime, after the blooms were spent but before the foliage withered, and they handled it just fine. I made sure to water them more than I typically would for the first couple weeks after planting.|

|Thanks, Dave and Rita! I'm going to plant them as soon as the soil is workable (we're getting some much needed rain right now) and hope for the best.|

|Would the same hold true for tulips that one might want to transfer to a different location as well? I want to move them before I forget where they are at. I have many things together in one spot that if I don't move them while I know where they are it won't get done at all |
