we are in november and due to the mild weather my daffodils and tulips and other spring bulbs are showing through, will this stop them flowering in spring?



Hi Andyc i was out in my garden earlier today and noticed that my tuplips were making an appearance, will be interesting to see what comments you get back.

No - although I heard the other day that someone actually has daffodils in flower already. Nothing you can do, and when the weather gets cold, they'll just stop growing and wait for the right conditions. You could always add a mulch over the top if you're concerned, once it does get colder.

Mine poked through last year and flowered fine, so did a few daffodils that had been dug up and they somehow survived.

Spring bulbs can show through during a mild Autumn, but will usually be fine and flower as normal come Spring.
