Another Daffodil question

Posted by mkmagee Z6 (My Page) on

I have an overgrown perennial I'm redoing. I had a lot of daffodils in it that have bloomed and still have green foliage. I have dug up all the perennials and they are filling every available spare place I have to transplant anything. I have someone coming in to rototill the bed and it won't be ready for at least a week and a half.

The daffodils are in a cardboard box with the foliage spilling out the top. They are getting plenty of sun. Do the bulbs have to be in soil or are they ok until they foliage dies back?

The bulbs need to be kept moist so can you cover them with soil, damp newspaper, grass clippings or something until they can go back in the ground? And I wouldn't keep them in full sun. Better in a cool shady spot.

Will do,,,thanks for the advice

RE: Another Daffodil question

Daffodils are the roots of almost all year round. When I transplanted them after the separation once again planting in the ground, without drying. This applies particularly to poeticus. Of course, you can keep them dry before planting, for example, to the fall. But it is better to plant them early, then they have more time to take roots.
