The bulbs are coming up

We’ve  had a mild spell of weather recently and the daffodil bulbs in the ground have responded by starting to come up. It’s too early, it’s still Winter, it’s only the beginning of January!!  Any blast of cold weather or frost will damage them.

When we were driving back from Taunton yesterday we saw trees in blossom.  The season’s are all upside down, the plants are confused.

I wonder how soon it will be before the daffodils are in bloom?

    Cover them up to save them! We had that happen to us last year with some bulbs and we should have covered them up because they never bloomed when the time was right.

  2. OK thanks for that, will do

  3. Oh dear, sprouting in January, the poor things are confused. I hope they can sit dormant for a few months without it being a drain on them. I thought daffodils had a short life and so a protracted infancy stage seems like it would go against their nature.

    Good luck with your weird winter-spring.
