By Matthew McCully – Since the fall of 2015 when 1,000 daffodil bulbs were planted on the Hatley Common, The Record has stopped by each spring to chart their progress. Donated by Hatley resident Loni Campbell, her plan was that the daffodils would spread each year to create a huge swath of yellow across The Common for residents and tourists travelling though town to enjoy in the spring. “They’re not doing very well,” Campbell said, disappointed with this year’s bloom.
“I don’t know why,” she added, hoping there might be daffodil experts in the Townships with tips to revive the bulbs. See full story in the Friday, May 17 edition of The Record.

Maybe the foliage is getting mowed too early before it can make and store enough nutrients in the bulb for the next year.
