So far this winter we’ve had lots of very heavy rain, which is excellent for daffodils.
The daffodils are all in very good condition, and should have plenty of substance. The extra water means the bulbs have that much more vigour and stamina, which means a longer growing season.
We can look forward to a marvelous show of daffodils this year – bang on time!
You may have noticed growth already of some early varieties – here or there we’re seeing some in flower already – varieties such as Early Sensation may be in flower now, particular if they’re in a sheltered position, and able to take advantage of the mild weather we’ve had so far! We’re bound to get a cold snap soon which will slow down the growth, but not harm the daffodils.
