A few years ago I was given some daffodil bulbs. I think a large number of them had been blind and that was why they were passed on to me. Not knowing what variety they were I'm pretty sure putting them in my lawn was an extra challenge. They were free, so I popped them in and didn't worry too much about whether they survived or not.
