I have a crabapple in the middle of a daffodil bed. I am losing daffodils in 
a pattern moving out from the trunk of the crabapple. I think it may be 
starving the bulbs, as I'm not aware of any toxins from this tree.  The black walnut 
is another matter. I've lost daffodils planted directly under black walnut 
trees.  I too James am in SW Ohio.
