Quick Tips:Tying Daffodils

April 1, 2012 § 2 Comments

I have a love hate  relationship with daffodils. It’s nice that they brave the unpredictability or spring and provide some much early color, but they tend to get real messy real fast. You can’t cut them down immediately after they bloom because the plant won’t have enough time to absorb nutrients. In order to tidy them up while still giving them to photosynthesize, simply  bend a bunch over and use a part to  tie them together. Your garden will look instantly neater. You can eventually  cut them back when they look pretty ragged and some of the leaves turn to yellow, depending on your climate   probably around  May.

    This is a great tip. They definitely get unruly as soon as the flower is gone.

    Also if you have alot of them use little rubbebands in the same fashion. All you have to do is pluck them when they are ready. I use the knot method in my ow gardens but on commerical I use the band theory

What’s this?
