Split your daffodils

If your daffodils are getting the sun they need but have stopped blooming, it’s time to split them up. Over the years they get crowded under the ground. This is a great time to divide them as we can see exactly where they are. Dig the whole clump and gently tease them apart, saving the biggest blooms to replant. Add compost and Bulbtone to the planting holes to make them thrive.
