I bought a couple of “Colossal Daffodil” bulbs back in October. The booklet that came with them mentioned to plant them in early November so that the bulbs could start developing their root systems and begin sprouting in early-mid Spring.
So, I did what the booklet mentioned: I planted them 6-7 inches deep in a fertilized potting mix that contained a bit of perlite to aid drainage. I planted them next to the walkway in front of my home that leads to the entrance. The area itself faces east and receives plentiful morning sun.
While I was on my way to my car outside my house, I noticed little green “bumps” in the soil. I took a closer look and noticed that the daffodils were starting to grow. The little “leaf bumbs” had just barely broken the soil and were about 1cm above ground level. Is this normal? The book said that they would sprout in mid-spring. I am worried that the cold over night temperatures might kill them… What do you suggest I do?
