Supporting Daffodil Heads

Supporting Daffodil Heads

The heads on some daffodils are so heavy that the stems kink. I support mine using old umbrella spokes and coated garden wire, fed through the hole, in the end of the spoke. Both daffodils in the photo are supported, using this method. NOT SUITABLE FOR USE, WHERE THERE ARE CATS, DOGS OR YOUNG CHILDREN. Thank you to 'Cottagekaren' for pointing this out.

Lovely though they are,I don't have them anymore,as I like the smaller ones better,for withstanding wind,etc..Good idea with the Umbrella stakes..
