Hi all,

I have a bed with some daffs that have mostly come up blind for the second year in a row now.

Do you think I should cut my losses and lift them or do you think a liquid feed of some kind would help build up stores for next year?



well a good feed wont hurt them. are they congested? if yes then lift and separate, but to be fair in the wild they dont get lifted.
allow them to die back naturally. plenty of water and a general purpose feed.

Also make sure that they are getting enough light in the weeks after they bloom.

We have several hundred daffs and a last year many of them were blind, it was so disappointing. I sprayed them all with Miraclegrow and this year they are fantastic again.

Thanks everyone, I shall try a feed and cross my fingers for next year.
