multiplication rates

gw2010nc(7b)March 22, 2011

This past Fall was my first time planting bulbs. I have enjoyed some of the blooms already and was wondering what I can look forward to next year.

Any ideas on how much do these multiply -

Daffodils, muscari, crocus, dutch iris, puschkinia, hyacinth?

I know the tulips are a once only thing. But any info from your observations regarding the others would be much appreciated. Like for each daffodil bloom this year, how many can I expect next year and the year after and so on..

Some daffodils are a lot more prolific than others and will multiply a lot faster.

Muscari, in my opinion, multiple fairly fast.

Hyacinth, don't multiple so much as they divide and the blooms in coming years will be more numerous, but not big and full like the first year. That has been my experience anyway.

I'm not sure about the other ones.
