Flowers are blooming, including daffodils and horticulturists recommend certain care for the plants to promote more blooms in the future. Iowa State University Extension and Outreach horticulturists say daffodils may produce foilage but not bloom if the plants were not able to store enough food in their bulbs in the previous year. The plants make food for four to six weeks after blooming and then store it in the bulbs, but are not able to do so if foliage is cut back before the process has occurred. Also, daffodil plants need at least six hours of direct sunlight daily.
