If flowers like Daffodils can only be grown from bulbs, where do the bulbs come from??
Daffodils will produce so many baby bulbs that they will spread and you'll end up after years wanting to give some of them away. You can purchase the bulbs almost anywhere. The question about where the bulbs come from is liking asking which came first, the chicken or the egg.
Actually, narcissus (including daffodils) , naked ladies, and other bulbs produce seed pods. Once the flower is spent, the pod can be found as a swelling at the top of the stem. Buying bulbs is just a more expedient way to get beautiful blooms. Bulbs also produce bulblets (baby bulbs that are attached to the main one) which can be removed and planted.
Brilliant!! Thanks I feel like I've learnt my something for today hehe
You guys obviously know your flowers!
