In Spring 2009 we bought three large pots of daffodils already in flower. They were extremely robust and provided a fabulous display. However, they produced no flowers last Spring and despite feeding them well last year, including before the winter set in, it looks like they have not produced any flowers this year either. What should I do?



They need to be planted deeply to flower regularly, so, either replant them in a deeper pot or, ideally, plant out in the ground at a depth of at least 4 inches. This way you won't dig them up too easily when they are dormant!

Feeding should be carried out as the flowers fade, but the leaves are still present, for about 6 weeks. If you fed later than that, it wouldn't be absorbed.

Feed as advised by Bamboo. When the leaves have died down let the pots dry out completely. Then remove the bulbs and repot in fresh compost. The buds for next years flowers are being formed as this years flowers and leaves die down and are stored in the dormant bulb.

How do I say thanks?
