December Weather Update

We’re looking out at the moment onto a good blanket of about four inches of snow covering lots of healthy growing shoots.

This is beneficial for the healthy life cycle of daffodils, as a period of cold helps to keep their cycle synchronised to the year and lets them know when it’s the right time to shoot and flower – just in time for the insects, but not so late that they would be overwhelmed by cover and shade from grasses and trees.

Due to the exceptionally mild November, the daffodils (especially potted ones) are growing very well. To protect yours from frost as we go into January, cover with a little dry peat or straw, which just takes the sharp edge off the frost.
