transplanting daffodils to shade

newbiehavinfun(7a - Southern NJ)March 10, 2010

Hi all. I need to transplant some daffodils. They were growing beneath a black walnut tree that has since been cut down (I hated to do it, but the dogs were getting sick eating the fruit) and now they are in the middle of the "grass" yard. So I have to move them before the grass gets too tall and my husband mows them over. I want to move them to the front yard that gets shade/partial sun. Are they going to die (based on your experience, I know you aren't all psychic)? Thanks!

They need deciduous sun. Sun during late winter, up til the trees leaf out. They won't grow well, probably not bloom, in full shade.

They should be fine in the sun/part shade.

A lot of mine are in the woods, but in the spring while they are putting up leaves and blooms, they are pretty well in full sun. Their 'growing' time above ground is what is most important to be in the sun.

Are they going to die (based on your experience, I know you aren't all psychic)?
No, they won't die, they are tough buggers. I'm surprised that they grew under the black walnut tree as so many things don't/won't.
