HI! My daffodils came up, looked very healthy, lots of green leaves. But only about half produced blooms. I have looked in my garden books, but I can't find any answer as to why many did not bloom. Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

They produced foliage but no blooms or no blooms yet? Well, they coudl be late, or it could be a fertilizer issue. Use a high phosphorous fertilizer on them.

Is this a new planting? were they small bulbs ? did you plant late

Were you hit by a freeze just as they were sening out the flower.

Is this an old planting and they are crowded ? if so dig up seperate and replant. they will grow bigger and bloom next year of the year after

Daffodils need very little care but when they get crowded after 5 years in one spot the bulbs get small and they do not bloom. just seperate and you will have many blooms
