Why do at least half of my daffodils stop flowering after their first year? They put up lots of leaves but no flowers, they look like giant spring onions! some are in containers, some in the garden, I feed them all with bulb food. Garden soil is heavy but the container soil should be fine for them.
thanks

Hi Alison, Often bulbs putting up just green foliage is either too much nitrogen in the fertiliser, in your case if you have used bulb fertiliser that shouldn’t be the case. Ensure you let the bulb completely die down before cutting of the foliage, then remove the bulbs and store in a dry garden shed or similar before planting out again place in the fridge for at least 6 weeks, this should help initiate the flower.
