Daffodils Multiplies And Too Small To Flower

There are probably THOUSANDS of Narcissus 'Foundling'. Only two will 
flower because they have split and multiplied into tiny offsets. This 
morning I used a spading fork to dig perhaps 20%. Potted up close to 100 
of the larger bulbs. Now need to harden my heart and toss the remainder 
in the compost heap. I plan to use a liquid fertilizer until they go 
dormant, then replant somewhere else.

But I'm having a hard time tossing away the smaller than baby pea sized 
bulbs. There are simply too, too many of them.

Let's see if I dig another 20% this year. And then next year. And the 
year after that.

Judy in New Jersey where we have a freeze warning for tonight. The 
forecast is for 31 degrees Fahrenheit. Piffle! That's not a worry. And 
anyway, frost free around here is after Mother's Day.
