All but three of the daffodil bulbs I planted in the front garden with Miss MBaF have come up ‘blind’ i.e. They haven’t flowered.
They’d been recycled from pots, where they’d languished for a few years, not flowering.
I thought it was a problem of overcrowding, and that separating them and planting them in the border would cure all ills.
Nope. Nothing doing.
Dug up, binned, new bulbs in the autumn.
On the upside:
-the new daffs in the back garden are lovely. And they’re on short stems – so better suited to our windy spot.
– the primroses are going great guns everywhere
– I noticed the first magnolia flower bud peeping through its downy jacket today
