The mild winter weather has encouraged some daffodils to start pushing their green tips towards the sun.

There is still time to plant bulbs. They may flower late but they will survive.

I also like to lift clumps that are diminishing in vigor, separate the bulbs and replant. The cooler temperatures make the digging easier and the emerging tips make them easy to find.

Unless a big rain is coming, water in the newly planted bulbs to give them a quick opportunity to recover. Growth doesn’t stop this time of year, it just slows down.

If you have info about the greater Crabtree and west 16 community, call or text, Jeff Burgess, 745-1249.
