The wee neglected corner in my shed showed me its true colours this morning. Resilience at its best.
Which reminded me of the daffodil bulbs that I planted very late in the season and how well they too have done.
And there is further neglect I must admit to. Indoor flowering Paperwhite Narcissi are traditionally planted during late Autumn/early Winter, rewarding with a flowering (and highly scented) display over the festive period and into the dreacher month of January.
During my first of many lockdown tidyups, I discovered a bag of lost souls (ashamed to say, Paperwhite bulbs). With nothing to lose, I potted them up (29th March) and 2 weeks later, they have came up trumps! The stems are maybe 3-4 cm shorter compared to the ones I grew into January, but their display, and perfume, are every bit as glorious.
Despite myself, the daffodils here have proven victorious. What’s done well undeterred by you? Happy Gardening! Joan
