What daffodils know… and you don’t.

April 5, 2011

A sweet little factoid about daffodils, tulips, squill, and other bulbs:

Each flower bulb has within it a “natural intelligence” about its perfect planting depth.  As long as it doesn’t freeze over the winter and as long as it can photosynthesize, it will migrate to the proper depth over time.

So you’re saying if I don’t get the depth right at planting time, these awesome bulbs will fix that themselves?! That’s awesome!!
