31 Oct Daffodils in the field or in the garden
When I think Daffodils, I think Spring. There is nothing like seeing a field of yellow blooms. They are deer resistant, unlike many other bulbs. There are advantages and disadvantages to having these beautiful flowers, You have to let the leaves die down, and may take up until June to do so. In a field, it doesn’t matter. But in the garden, It can take up the space you need to plant your Summer bed. They can also be unsightly. To remedy that, just plant short ones. You still have the color without a mass of dying leaves. There are early, mid, and late blooming verities. If they are mixed in a bed, you will have blooms form Valentine until Easter. How could you complain with that?
