    The second life of daffodils
    After March 8, there are many pots with flowering bulbs left. Their stores are selling out, greatly reducing the price.
    Several times I acquired such "expired" daffodils. Follow-up care for them. The plants were immediately transferred to a larger pot filled with a mixture of peat and sand (2:1). Then, slightly moistening the soil, she took the containers to the basement or other cool place. She left daffodils there until the beginning of autumn, when the time came for planting bulbous plants. Occasionally moisten the soil so that it does not dry out. Planted in the ground in the fall, like all bulbs.

    I dig out the adult bulbs of daffodils every 4-5 years, as soon as their foliage turns yellow (this is approximately the end of June - July). On young plantings, I do not cut yellow leaves. Of these, the onion draws all the nutrients and stores them in reserve. This period can stretch for a long time, almost 2 months (especially if the weather is damp). True, yellowing foliage spoils the appearance of the flower garden. I solve the problem this way: I weave all this yellowing dead wood into a thin braid and dress it under neighboring flowers.

    With the landing of daffodils I do not pull
    I plant daffodils in August, without waiting for September. As a result, plants manage to form a more powerful root system, which is good for overwintering and subsequent flowering.

    If there is no sweltering heat in August, I plant daffodils (rather than waiting for September). As a result, the plants manage to form a more powerful root system, which has a good effect on overwintering and flowering in the following years. I start planting when the temperature of the soil drops to + 8 ... + 10 degrees, and lasts more than a week.

    In October, accidentally dug out a huge nest of daffodils, grown over 8 years. The seedling in the garden. I know that they land them in August. Will the bulbs carry the winter at a late planting?

    • OOO "Sad"

      - Narcissus will survive the winter, but in the spring they will most likely not blossom. Or the quality of flowering will not be the same as you would like. In the middle of the bulb, narcissus is usually planted from mid-August to early September. Although primarily focused on the weather: if the temperature is held steadily for several weeks at + 10 degree, you can plant. The weather conditions in recent years have changed, and the bulbs are planted sometimes and until 15 September. Given that in October it was still warm, the soil did not freeze, they must take root and form a root system. Now we need to cover the planting to the onset of stable frost by dry LEAVES, peat, but do not use polyethylene film.


    To prevent the narcissus from losing its varietal properties, after flowering, it is not worth throwing them to the mercy of fate. Simple operations will not take a lot of time.
    In June I feed carefully, the foliage of the daffodil with complex mineral fertilizer (I fill up the top layer of soil and water).

    Leaves after flowering do not cut off - they contain nutrients that turn into an onion as the leaves turn yellow. And that the flower garden looked like a spit.
    Young bulbs after flowering do not dig.

    In one place, my daffodils grow 5-6 years, then I transplant. Adult bulbs are excavated in June-July. I cut off the aboveground part, I dry out the bulbs in a cool shady place, I divide into babies and store them in a box. Planted in the second half of August, adding mineral fertilizer (1 tsp per bulb) to the soil and wood ash (1 st. On 3 bulbs). The depth of planting is three diameters of the bulb.

    Daffodils: seasonal care

    Daffodils, these beautiful flowers, will become your pride and will be worthy of admiration, if they are properly taken care of.

    Spring. After thawing snow, I release narcissus from shelter. Usually they blossom in April-May, but this will happen sooner if at the end of March, snow is snowed, the shelter is removed from the beds and a film shelter is placed over them on the skeletons.
    After flowering daffodils, I water another 2 weeks - at this time nutrients accumulate in the bulbs. I loosen the soil near the flowers so that air can flow to the roots. But I do it carefully, no deeper than 2 cm.

    Summer. I transplanted narcissuses 1 times in 3-4 year. I dig up the bulbs in early July. I select healthy, clear them. I divide the nests of the bulbs, wash them, keep them for 30 min. in a solution of potassium permanganate, dried in the shade, I cleaned for storage until the fall.
    If I do not dig up the bulbs, then I remove the dried leaves and loosen the ground so that weeds do not appear. In the 2-th half of August, I resume watering, because the roots grow.

    Autumn. Before planting I examine the bulbs, remove the damaged, soft and darkened, stand the selected 30 min. in an 1% solution of potassium permanganate. I planted in early September, at a depth equal to the triple-height of the bulb. Before the cold mulch narcissus peat, leaves with a layer of 10 cm.

    Narcissus poeticus (Narcissus poeticus)

    Description. This species is often used in breeding to produce new varieties. A perennial bulbous plant up to 30 in height. The leaves are very narrow, almost flat, green with a bluish coating. Each plant is formed from 2 to 4 leaves. Flowers with a light, pleasant scent, solitary, drooping, white.
    A characteristic feature - on a flat yellow crown is a thin bright red border. It bursts in May, but blooms about a week and a half. Agrotechnics. Daffodils grow in the sun and in the penumbra. Soil is preferred drained, fertile. Absolutely wetting, calcareous soils, and also introducing fresh manure are not tolerated at all. In one place can grow for a long time, without losing decorativeness. In the conditions of the middle belt, they feel good, although it is better to cover them with lapnik or leaf litter for the winter.

    Reproduction. Propagation by the division of the bulb socket.
    Using. Daffodils are planted in separate groups or together with other spring-spring crops. Can be used for distillation. Beautifully look in the mixborders, planted in the so-called technical zones (areas between perennials).

    We love daffodils for their strong, pleasant aroma. But in the gardens, the most ordinary “grandmother's” varieties are often grown. They fade quickly, and we no longer see them. But the choice of daffodils is huge. The former begin to bloom in April, and the latter bloom along with lilacs and late tulips at the end of May. But sometimes daffodils do not bloom at all, only leaves grow. What is the reason? How to get a wonderful fragrant bouquet?
    To collect a collection of early and late varieties, you need to buy daffodils in the fall and look at the timing of flowering. They are written on the packaging in Roman numerals. As a rule, imported planting material is sold, so the dates are indicated a month earlier: for early varieties, month III (in Europe they bloom in March, and in our country in April). Late varieties - IV-V month.
    Plant daffodils in September, at a distance of 10-15, see Depth-the diameter of the bulb (ne clay soil can be smaller).
    And now about why daffodils do not bloom. Often you have to see a huge bunch of leaves without flowers at all. The reason is that the plants are too crowded. If you dig out the bulbs, they are tightly pressed together. Their form is flat. There is not much use for such bulbs, there is not enough nutrition in them, and a flower bud is not formed.
    The way out is to plant daffodils more spaciously (by 10-15 cm). If you dig out the whole bunch, then the bulbs will be enough for a whole ridge. But decoratively, this is not interesting. It is good to plant them with a border or apply a group planting, 10-15 bulbs nearby, creating a color spot. You need to place them in different parts of the garden. Get vibrant, vibrant bouquets in the garden.
    Daffodils are transplanted during dormancy, when the leaves begin to turn yellow. But in the middle lane, the leaves of daffodils sometimes do not turn yellow. Then they are dug up at the end of June - the beginning of June, the leaves are cut off and stored in a dry room. Planted in September after 10-15 cm.
