Why didn't my daffodils bloom this year?

After several years of beautiful blooms in the same location, the daffodils failed to produce any flowers. Daffodils in other beds planted at the same time blooms. Should dig them up and replant in fall?

    Chances are there is a overcrowding. Transplant them in the fall.

    The bulbs may be spent. Lots of reasons for this. check your soil condition. Top up gardens with fresh soil and mulch , plant fresh bulbs in the fall and enjoy your spring show. !!

    You have a choice-in the fall you can try digging them up and see if it is overcrowding in which case you replant and wait for them to rebuild (this can take a few years), or you can just say, whatever, and take advantage of early bulb sales now and order new daffs for next spring. I actually do both-I replant and reorder, because in upstate NY, you have to have daffs in the spring!!

    Did you leave the follage in place last year. Do not cut the green back but let it die in place. That nourishes next years buds.
