bulbs not flowering

Postby seanagh » May 05, 2014 10:16 am

I have a problem with daffodils not setting flowers. I let the foliage die back naturally last year and gave them a feeding of well rotted manure once they had finished fowering, but this year there is yet again a disappointing number of flower buds emerging/out. Can anyone tell me what am I doing wrong?

Too shady perhaps? I have daffodils planted in all variety of sun/shade situations - they definitely bloom in accordance with the level of sun they get, the sunniest ones bloomed two weeks ago but some of the ones against a northeast-facing wall have sprouted fine but show no signs of flowering (yet).
