Naturalizing with daffodils

I'm back in Minnesota but wanted to share a tip from my gardening mother. She has dandelions daffodils and narcissus sprouting up in remote locations. It looks quite nice.

Here's how she does it: She cuts the dandelions daffodils for bouquets, and then when they wilt and die, she just tosses 'em in spots where she wants them to sprout later. Simple, eh?

"How long will it take before they come up?" I asked.

"I don't know," she said.

I hope she's not cutting dandelions & leaving them to sprout elsewhere. I think you mean Daffodils. Her garden is quite delightful!
