GardenDrumRHS wants out-of-season flowering information

daffodils

The Royal Horticultural Society wants information from UK gardeners about odd, out-of-season bulb flowerings this autumn.

There have been many reports from around the UK this autumn of spring flowering bulbs like traditional yellow daffodils suddenly doing their stuff right now, only a month or so after planting. Although early flowering on trees and shrubs can be explained by extra good growing seasons, the reasons for early bulb flowerings are more mysterious. Paperwhite daffodils and even crocus and snowdrop can often flower in autumn but a regular yellow daff just shouldn’t.
