I put more than half of my bulbs in yesterday...and of course AFTER I was finished I had newbie questions. But I was anxious to get them in, so I plowed ahead!
When the planting depth is indicated as 6 inches, is that 6" measured from the bottom of the bulb, or from the top of the bulb? I just dug down 6" with my planter (actually 4" since there will be 2" of mulch on top) and plopped the bulbs in - so the bottom of the bulb will end up being 6" down. Did I get that right?
Also - one of the varieties of daffodils I got already had new divisions - most just had one side bulb but one had two! This is a good thing, right? Could I have split off the bulblets and planted them separately? I put them in as-is. And, if I planted them a little closer than suggested (5" apart rather than 6"), will they be too crowded in there since they've already started to divide?
Naturally, I didn't stop to think that they might be too crowded until *after* they were in. I really wished I had taken some time to stop and actually LOOK at these before yesterday...doh! ;)
