    Frequently Asked Questions

    If you forget to plant your Daffodil Baby Boomer bulbs, it is recommended to do so as soon as possible. Planting them late may result in delayed or erratic blooming, but it's still worth giving it a try. Ensure the soil is well-drained and rich in organic matter. Dig a hole of appropriate depth, typically two to three times the bulb's height, and place the bulb with the pointed side up. Water the bulbs after planting to provide them with moisture, but avoid overwatering as it can lead to rot.

    Daffodil Baby Boomer bulbs do not require daily watering. These bulbs are relatively low-maintenance and generally thrive with minimal watering. They prefer moderately moist soil, so it's best to water them when the top inch of soil feels dry. Overwatering can cause bulb rot, so it's important to strike a balance and provide adequate but not excessive moisture.

    Daffodil Baby Boomer can be grown both in pots and in the ground, but they tend to perform better when planted in the ground. Planting them in the ground allows the bulbs to establish deeper root systems and provides them with better access to nutrients. However, if you have limited garden space or want to enjoy the flowers on a patio or balcony, growing them in pots is a viable option. Ensure the pots have drainage holes and use a well-draining potting mix.

    Staking Daffodil Baby Boomer bulbs is generally not necessary. These daffodils have sturdy stems that can support the weight of their flowers without assistance. However, if you live in a particularly windy area or if your daffodils are prone to flopping over, you may consider staking them. Use stakes or plant supports and gently secure the stems to provide additional support and prevent bending or breaking.

    Daffodil Baby Boomer bulbs are generally considered deer resistant. Deer tend to avoid daffodils due to their toxic compounds, such as alkaloids, which make the bulbs and foliage unappealing to them. However, it's important to note that no plant is completely deer-proof, and if deer populations are high or food sources are scarce, they may still nibble on daffodils as a last resort. To increase the likelihood of deterring deer, consider planting other deer-resistant plants alongside your daffodils and using additional (nature-friendly) deer deterrent measures if necessary.
