At the beginning of the year, my parents gave me a couple of pots of mini daffodils. The bulbs were crammed into the pots and clearly would not have enjoyed a second year in such conditions. At the same time, I didn’t want to dedicate anymore of the back garden to flowers which did not serve a dual purpose (eg be something I could eat as well as admire).
In truth, I did find a ready-made hole (because of the washing line pole) near the cauliflowers, into which I popped one of the bulbs. The rest, however, have gone into the front garden.
There is still plenty of grass to be killed off underneath the current greenery, which is a mixture of green manure, marigolds and Swiss chard (on the whole). There are also bits of cardboard dotted about, waiting for compost to be popped on top. But as the daffs won’t be appearing till next spring, I’m sure a bit of cardboard and compost will do them no harm!
