Nancy - Thanks for the advice! It has been a cold wet spring here also. My daffodils bloomed 3-4 weeks later than normal. To answer your questions, they are in semi-shade, receiving sun for about 3 hours 11-2 PM and another hour at about 6 PM. I don't think it's a nutrient problem. They are planted with daffodils, so when and if I fertilize, I use something like 6-24-24 and occasionally throw fireplace ashes down on the beds. Patience may be the answer.

Are they planted in a shady or sunny location-this will influence blooming and dates.>> ___________________________________________________________________ Get Juno Platinum for as low as $4.97/month!
