Gardening with Ginny – Daffodils
We’re back with Ginny Rosenkranz from the University of Maryland extension office to talk about the beloved daffodils.
There are many differences in the spring daffodil, the shape of the trumpet, the color of the petals, but all characteristics lead to spring!
Ginny says that some can be bring yellow, while others cream colored with white details. If you want daffodils, its best to plant in the fall. But make sure to look out for soaked ground and areas that are sun-blocked. As Ginny says, the bulbs don’t like to drown.
There are early, mid, and late bloomers in the spring season with daffodils, along with the miniatures that are half the size of the normal spring daffodils.
Luckily for your garden, animals do not like the taste of daffodils, so they are very safe for your garden.
Ginny also talked about the Cherry Blossoms blooming in D.C., and how some will always bloom a bit early than the main group, because of the first touches of warmer weather.
