hi, i have Acropolis, Ice King and Mount Frost bulbs and i really need them to be flowering the week of the 25th of April next year. I have enough to plant in groups so hopefully at least some of them will flower at the right time but what i need to know is what is the best time to start planting them to be sure some of them will flower that week.

Any help with this would be fantastic.

Thank you

it is easier to get daffodils to flower earlier than their season than to flower later than normal. Plant the bulbs much later than normal say in January rather than Sep/Oct.
Grow under normal conditions outside without cover. Did a lot of work on daffodils one time but not lately. There is much information available in Dutch sites about the flowering dates of different varieties.
