Dead head the Daffodils

Well I just went outside for a coffee in the sunshine and as usual had to do something, so ended up dead heading the daffodils.

It is very important to take off the dead heads at this time then all the energy of the plant is redirected back into the bulb for next years flowers!

You do the right thing. I have several April posts about tulip/daffodile festival in Washington state, and this is exactly what they do with plants. They deadhead them and it makes many people mad, because the flowers are still beautiful at that time...
