My bulbs are not coming up
Let us try to figure out what happened. Send us a message.
My daffodils (or other perennial bulbs) only have foliage the second year after planting.
Bulbs go through a photosynthesis process, where flower bulbs use their leaves to pick up sun energy, to create next year’s flower. Cutting the foliage too early or braiding or tying the foliage can interrupt this process. It takes at least 6-8 weeks for the foliage to die off naturally. If the foliage did not get enough energy, the bulbs will not flower.
My flowers are the wrong color.
- Have you planted different bulbs in the same location in previous years? You could be seeing those bulbs. Offshoots could have grown large enough to flower.
- Have the flowers matured yet? Some varieties start a different color and then develop into the mature color.
If this is the case, we ask for your patience. If you have waited a week or two, send us close up pictures.
