Daffodil growing tips from around North America

The #FleurChat daffodil chatterers are everywhere from British Columbia to the Deep South. We had fun talking daffodils when I was honored to be the #FleurChat guest.

Read about their favorite daffodil varieties, growing tips, and how many bulbs they're planting right now (lots!) in the transcript from our convivial #FleurChat about daffodils.

#FleurChat is a Twitter event on alternate Thursdays at 6 p.m. Pacific time.

recent guest on #FleurChat was Kathy Jentz, editor/publisher of Washington Gardener magazine, and member of the board of the Garden Writers Association, talking about her favorite flowers for the D.C. zone 7 climate.

An earlier guest was Debra Lee Baldwin, Queen of Succulents, with comments on blooming succulents and cacti.

The mastermind behind #FleurChat? Fern Richardson, whose new book Small Space Container Gardens is top of the hit parade of forthcoming garden books. Fern will be speaking at a garden show near you in 2012.

Looking forward to February, when my 'Rijnveld's Early Sensation' will get daffodil season underway here in Zone 7b.
