Daffodils!

Post  miinva on 3/14/2011, 12:44 am

I know it's the wrong time of year to divide daffodils, but we were out fixing the fence for our horse and there were five or six daffodil plants randomly coming up in her pasture. I've noticed them in previous years, but she hasn't been out on that pasture to run them over and trample them so we pulled four of them up today. Oh my gosh! I got hundreds of little daffodil bulbs! That may be a slight exaggeration, but I'm not so sure that it is Smile I filled my sunflower bed with them and gave 20 or so away to a neighbor and I still have 2/3 of what we divided left. I have no idea where I'm going to put the rest of them! I suspect that tomorrow I'll make a mad dash for potting soil and cobble together some kind of bed to grow them in. Most of the ones that are left are tiny so they won't flower, but I can't bear to waste them.

I'll be honest - I wasted mine. When I dug my front, very overgrown, beds out to put in strawberries - between the daffs and the irises it was a solid mass of bulbs. Who knew that iris bulbs would grow horizontally and end up the size of sweet potatoes - LOL. Or at least I think they were irises. Same basic leaf shape as the daffs but much wider and with a totally matted root system.

The tops went in the compost and the bulbs that I didn't give my neighbor went in the trash. They are all along the sides of the house already and no real place to put them. Curb appeal means a little less when you rent and are out on the borders of the country
