@FleurChat: Welcome everyone! Tonight’s #fleurchat topic is daffodils, and we have @DaffodilPlanter here to share her love and knowledge with us!

 

@DaffodilPlanter: @FleurChat So happy to be here with other daffodil lovers! Curious to hear what are your faves. #fleurchat

 

@gardengeri: RT @fleurchat: The easiest way to participate in #FleurChat is to use our Tweet Chat Room: http://t.co/nMAhxTfZ

 

@DaffodilPlanter: Looks like the Chat Room is working quickly tonight. #fleurchat

 

@jchapstk: #fleurchat Hello, everyone.

 

@WherePlantsRock: Hello- glad I could make it #fleurchat

 

@WherePlantsRock: Trying this from iPhone – havent tried tweetchat from it before #fleurchat

 

@jchapstk: @WherePlantsRock I loaded that yesterday, but not using it now. Still learning. #fleurchat

 

@jchapstk: #fleurchat Favorite daffodil would be King Alfred, I believe. I bought pink daffodils, but they were enormous yellows instead. Loved them

 

@FleurChat: Q1 – If you could grow only one daffodil, which one would you grow? #fleurchat

 

@WherePlantsRock: @daffodilplanter I have too many favorites #fleurchat

 

@DaffodilPlanter: Q1 Passionale a pink large cupped daffodil is my fave. http://ht.ly/6PXYq #fleurchat

 

@gardengeri: RT @FleurChat: Q1 – If you could grow only one daffodil, which one would u grow? #fleurchat rijenvelds early sensation Jetfire or Stainless

 

@DaffodilPlanter: @jchapstk I think I’m bored with King Alfred but then am excited every yr when they come up! #fleurchat

 

@DaffodilPlanter: @gardengeri Agree, rijnvelds is a MUST for first blooming yellow cheer #fleurchat

 

@jchapstk: @DaffodilPlanter I moved. Left them and have never gotten that same bulb since. Never that large, that yellow. #fleurchat

 

@WherePlantsRock: @DaffodilPlanter tazettas and poeticus varieties are exciting me this year #fleurchat

 

@jchapstk: #fleurchat I like that you can have a very, very long daffodil season if you plan it right.

 

@vagablonde515: #FleurChat joining u and Chris as well from the I40 near Gallup NM no flowers here just scrubby brush and a tumbleweed or 2

 

@DaffodilPlanter: @WherePlantsRock So elegant and fragrant! #fleurchat

 

@WherePlantsRock: @jchapstk or is that ‘plant’ it right- how are you? #fleurchat

 

@deltagardener: Almost forgot about #Fleurchat

 

@DaffodilPlanter: @jchapstk Definitely get early, mid and late for weeks of bloom. #fleurchat

 

@DaffodilPlanter: @vagablonde515 Hi! Do you plant in containers? #fleurchat

 

@jchapstk: @WherePlantsRock plan it right. choose a variety of different daffodils, some early, some middle, some late. long season. #fleurchat

 

@jchapstk: @WherePlantsRock I’m good. tired. #fleurchat

 

@WherePlantsRock: @DaffodilPlanter I like the fact that daffodils ‘shine’ in the spring garden #fleurchat

 

@deltagardener: Love daffodils but lose a lot to narcissus bulb fly. #Fleurchat

 

@gardengeri: #FleurChat trying pure white Stainless this fall – anyone have experience?

 

@DaffodilPlanter: @deltagardener Welcome! #fleurchat

 

@WherePlantsRock: @deltagardener what is your zone? #fleurchat

 

@DaffodilPlanter: @deltagardener Do they have an insect predator? The flies I mean. #fleurchat

 

@deltagardener: @WherePlantsRock Zone 7a #Fleurchat

 

@LifeOnTheBlcny: Beautiful! Does it have a scent?RT @DaffodilPlanter: Q1 Passionale a pink large cupped daffodil is my fave.http://t.co/yUAnWgz8  #fleurchat

 

@DaffodilPlanter: @gardengeri I’ve heard whites do not return so well but I want to try stainless. #fleurchat

 

@jchapstk: @gardengeri You will have to share how it goes. That is a new variety for me. #FleurChat

 

@gardengeri: #FleurChat I love that daffs r poisonous so critters do NOT eat

 

@deltagardener: @DaffodilPlanter Not sure. Best to plant them in amongst grass so as to disguise leaves. #Fleurchat

 

@vagablonde515: @DaffodilPlanter yes and we have 10 or so beds as well #Fleurchat

 

@DaffodilPlanter: @LifeOnTheBlcny Mild to no scent, but beautiful #fleurchat

 

@WherePlantsRock: @deltagardener hmmm #fleurchat

 

@FleurChat: Q2 – Are there any special tricks for growing daffodils? #fleurchat

 

@DaffodilPlanter: @vagablonde515 Your fave varieties or types? #fleurchat

 

@WherePlantsRock: @gardengeri I throw in a little grave or crushed rock in the holes before I plant anyhow #fleurchat

 

@DaffodilPlanter: Q2 Growing tips: Sun, drainage, no fertilizer at planting, no water in summer. http://ht.ly/6PY7i #fleurchat

 

@deltagardener: I love the smaller narcissus, tete a tete and February gold.n #Fleurchat

 

@jchapstk: #fleurchat Dry summers is the best luck.

 

@RedneckRosarian: Hello! Dropping in for #fleurchat

 

@gardengeri: In #Atlanta late doubles don’t open well. #FleurChat #heatandhumidity

 

@DaffodilPlanter: @WherePlantsRock Brent & Ken Druse were just saying that, helps deter voles too #fleurchat

 

@jchapstk: May not be cold enough long enough for them. RT @gardengeri: In #Atlanta late doubles don’t open well. #FleurChat #heatandhumidity

 

@DaffodilPlanter: @deltagardener where do you plant the little ones? Path side? Container? #fleurchat

 

@DaffodilPlanter: @RedneckRosarian What’s your fave daffodil? #fleurchat

 

@RedneckRosarian: Pheasant eye is a favorite daffodil #fleurchat

 

@DaffodilPlanter: @RedneckRosarian <sigh> #fleurchat

 

@deltagardener: @DaffodilPlanter Right along sidewalk to my front door. I want to see them easily. Always clean garden in January. #Fleurchat

 

@tylamac: @deltagardener Love tete a tete and February gold. This year I discovered Rapture a later blooming cyclemenius #fleurchat

 

@gardengeri: My pal added bonemeal 2 holes and critters came along behind and dug ‘em all up #FleurChat

 

@tylamac: Okay I’m finally in the right place. Hello,everyone! #fleurchat

 

@DaffodilPlanter: @tylamac Hi to another card-carrying daffodil nut! #fleurchat

 

@tylamac: @gardengeri In my experience daffs do not like bonemeal. Kelp is key for me. #fleurchat

 

@tylamac: @DaffodilPlanter Hi Charlotte! Glad to be here. #fleurchat

 

@gardengeri: Too hot too humid too early 4 late doubles #Atlanta #FleurChat

 

@WherePlantsRock: @RedneckRosarian that is a lovely one- I am debating about ordering Angel Eyes #fleurchat

 

@gardengeri: RT @jchapstk: @gardengeri You will have to share how it goes. That is a new variety for me. #FleurChat /yes

 

@tylamac: Poeticus for Zone 7? #fleurchat

 

@WherePlantsRock: @jchapstk I am high desert- I do well with daffodils #fleurchat

 

@tylamac: @gardengeri Try Bridal Crown,Sir Winston or Cheerfulness. #fleurchat

 

@gardengeri: RT @tylamac: @gardengeri In my experience daffs do not like bonemeal. Kelp is key for me. #fleurchat

 

@jchapstk: @gardengeri Thanks. #FleurChat

 

@DaffodilPlanter: @tylamac Actaea worked here in 7b for several years #fleurchat

 

@deltagardener: So many bulbs to choose from. I have hundreds already. #Fleurchat

 

@jchapstk: @WherePlantsRock city dweller. few critter problems. just the dry summers. can’t control the weather. #fleurchat

 

@deltagardener: @tylamac Cheerfulness is fabulous! #Fleurchat

 

@LifeOnTheBlcny: Good info “@gardengeri: Too hot too humid too early 4 late doubles #Atlanta #FleurChat”

 

@DaffodilPlanter: @deltagardener What % of yours return? #fleurchat

 

@DaffodilPlanter: @jchapstk They really want a dry summer #fleurchat

 

@gardengeri: @tylamac In my experience daffs do not like bonemeal. Kelp is key for me. #fleurchat /kelp = good 4 daffs, bloodmeal repels critters

 

@deltagardener: @DaffodilPlanter I would say 60% at best guess. I have better luck with tulips and allium. #Fleurchat

 

@tylamac: @DaffodilPlanter Anyone tried Ornatus? I’ve heard it does well thru Zone 8 but I can’t find it this year. #fleurchat

 

@jchapstk: @DaffodilPlanter not happening here in the “land of pleasant living” (MD) #fleurchat

 

@WherePlantsRock: @DaffodilPlanter eremurus are the same way-hmmm, should order some of those too #fleurchat

 

@FleurChat: Q3 – What/Where are your favorite places to find daffodil planting inspiration? Any really good public gardens? #fleurchat

 

@DaffodilPlanter: Q3 Check your neighborhoods in spring. Keukenhoff park in Holland. Fave peeks in this link http://ht.ly/6PYmQ #fleurchat

 

@deltagardener: One year I planted 1200 different bulbs. Love planting bulbs under large trees. #Fleurchat

 

@tylamac: @FleurChat Abandoned gardens. I find all kinds of bulbs that aren’t sold retail. #fleurchat

 

@vagablonde515: @DaffodilPlanter roses do very well in Texas ~ I’ve tried hydrangea but failed we have terrible clay soil #Fleurchat iris short bloom time

 

@DaffodilPlanter: @deltagardener Wow, heavenly with the large trees and tall grass #fleurchat

 

@RedneckRosarian: Love my Mount Good white daffodils. Mid season blooms #fleurchat

 

@tylamac: @deltagardener 1200! That’s a lot of bulbs! Under tress works well for me. #fleurchat

 

@WherePlantsRock: @tylamac have you tried @brentandbeckys ? Is that the correct user name? Brent and Becky’s bulbs #fleurchat

 

@deltagardener: @tylamac Got a great price I couldn’t refuse. #Fleurchat

 

@LifeOnTheBlcny: RT @tylamac In my experience daffs do not like bonemeal. Kelp is key for me. #fleurchat

 

@tylamac: @RedneckRosarian I love Mount Hood too but it’s finicky in my garden. Blooms heavily about every 2 yrs. #fleurchat

 

@deltagardener: Bulbs are costly here. 25 bulbs can run $10 #Fleurchat

 

@jchapstk: #fleurchat so many good established beds around here. arboretums, public gardens – National Arboretum, Cylburn, Dupont Gardens….

 

@DaffodilPlanter: @tylamac Love historic daffodils. Made a beeline for that table at the national show #fleurchat

 

@tylamac: @WherePlantsRock @BrentandBecky’s is my favorite. #fleurchat

 

@gardengeri: BrentandBecky’s is fave! #FleurChat

 

@jchapstk: Mine did too RT @tylamac: @RedneckRosarian I love Mount Hood too but it’s finicky in my garden. Blooms heavily about every 2 yrs. #fleurchat

 

@tylamac: @DaffodilPlanter The older the better for me.I’m sorry I missed that show.I have heard great things about it. #fleurchat

 

@gardengeri: My goal is 1,000 bulbs ea year #FleurChat daffs and all the rest

 

@LifeOnTheBlcny: @tylamac I’ve heard of people who have found fab “lost” varieties of plants in old cemeteries. #fleurchat

 

@RedneckRosarian: @tylamac mine do the same thing. Beautiful big blooms worth waiting for. #fleurchat

 

@DaffodilPlanter: @jchapstk @tylamac National Show in MD in April 2012 #fleurchat
