Question: Any idea what these eggs are? I can find reference to something that bores into the base of the plant/bulb, and lays eggs, but nothing about on the tips of the leaves. And it's only on this one variety/clump. -- Betty F.
Answer: Brent isn't sure what type of eggs they are, but since daffodils aren't affected by many insects, he said he didn't think there was anything to worry about. Let's hope they are lady bug eggs or some other beneficial critter! -- Brent and Becky's Bulbs in Gloucester ... www.brentandbeckysbulbs.com
