I am having a problem with my front flower bed. It is about 10ft long and 9in wide. The first 5ft will grow sweet williams but not daffodils and the second 5ft will grow daffodils and not sweet william. I have tried new bulbs and reseeding but nothing works. [dunno]

Is this a ph problem???

Hi Kaliah,

According to this site they are in the same ph range.

plant ph preferences

Do the leaves of the daffodils come up when you plant them where you have the sweet william?

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.

Nope, there are maybe one or two stray leaves where the sweet williams grow, but 99% of the flowers come up only on the right hand side. There are no sweet williams, absolutely none intermixed with the daffodils.

It's weird.

Have you dug up the bulbs that don't bloom? I'm wondering if it's too damp under that area and the bulbs are rotting. I'm stumped on this one. Maybe someone will help.
