Something as eaten my daffodils?
I've had alot eaten this spring, by slugs. They didn't get a hard winter to thin their numbers, and the mild weather has them out earlier than normal. They've eaten alot of my buds, before they opened up.

Look for telltale marks from the offenders - slugs leave a shiny slime trail, that can last for a few days. Otherwise, it could be insects, or larger animals, such as mammals.

Good luck! Rob
Reply:to prevent ant creature form eating them in the future ,just sprinkle Cayenne/ hot pepper seasoning ,around the planting.

once the animails tatse that , they won't be back.

Reply:Nature's hooligans....snails. The bug gers just got all my rock melon seedlings.
Reply:Either an insect or rabbits.
Reply:Any large hoofed animal, like the Donkey who lives next door to my friend however fluffy little bunnies (good eating) could be public enemy No1 in your case. Prepare a pie dish with some nice veg then get the little buggers.
Reply:sorry, i was really hungary. and nothing beats fresh daffodils!! little mustard on them... mmm mmm!! good eats!
Reply:Squirrels are the culprit.
Reply:rabbits or slugs

Reply:Possibly rabbits, moles, or deer.

Did you have a hard freeze after the bloom formed? If you did, this may have caused the bloom to drop off.
