I planted 600 daffodils I purchased from a Top 5 Garden Watchdog nursery. They looked fine when I received and planted them, but only around 25 of them bloomed.
I purchased another 300 daffodils from a different online nursery, and they all bloomed. They were also around 1/5 the price as the daffodils that didn't bloom, and much smaller.
I planted them at the same time, on the same day, only the ones that didn't bloom were planted in front of the daffodils that did bloom. That is how I can tell which were which. Needless to say the front yard looks a little odd having massive blooms in one section, and 25 blooms in the front.
I have been planting daffodils, tulips, roses, and other perennials for the last 26 years, and have never had this happen before. I planted them at least 6" deep, with the proper spacing, and fertilized when planting.
What is the problem? Should I dig them up? Thanks!
