hi all, my daffodils have gone funny this year these two have come up with lots of little flowers, they were all singles headed last year.

If they normally grow as single heads then they:
1) were young bulbs last year and had not reached full potential (some daffodils do have several flowers per head), or
2) this year the stems are 'faciated' ie several stems have fused together as one. You will be able to tell if this is the case because rather than being round, the stems will appear to be broad and flat. I don't know exactly why this happens but all you can do is enjoy the daffodils as they are, and they do look very attractive.

They might be volunteer seedlings pollinated by a multiflowering variety. The cup shape indicates genes from Narcissus triandrus.
