Blooming lol. Same here, even the dwarf ones are reaching for the sky and have multiplied significantly.

There were quite a few down our drive/track, have been for years, but this year, they seem to be most of the way along!  Smashing!!

I have loads in the back garden, was wondering if it's at all possible to move them once they're out the ground as I'd love to fill the space beside the new Fence in the front garden with them.

Mustve had a special offer on some years back as our garden was full of all sorts of daffs, everywhere when we moved in.  I dug them up when they had finished flowering, stored them and replanted as and where I wanted, gave aways lots too and all did very well.  Last year the grass verge nextdoor had its daffs out at Christmas, this year they came up early Feb and still looking strong.  Lots more than usual along the bank by the back gate of the school field as well.

Thanks to Maureen's suggestion have now planted my new Cherry tree, looks a very healthy specimen and am looking forward to watching it grow and hopefully cherries in a few years, if the birds dont get there first. Carrots in, parsnips in, onions growing, potatoes chitting, rhubarb sprouting nicely, just got beetroot, tomatoes, French beans to go, need some new strawberry plants and some peppers. Blackcurrant budding and just see Apple buds. That's the lot, rubbish growing last year,hoping for better this year. Keeps me busy and much rather be in the garden than indoors, and the daffodils are nodding their heads.

Sorry, I mean, would it be ok to move them now whilst they're flowering or will they just die?

Think if they have a good clump of earth around them and you transplant as soon as you dig them up then they should be OK.  Have done it before and mine were fine.....maybe just try it out with some in case you lose them.  (seeing as you are in digging mode!! and its easier than putting in a steel)

Stuart, if you really must move them now (if they are in the way), I would advise, pick the blooms, enjoy them indoors, then plant the bulbs, with the leaves attatched. Best of both worlds! They are pretty hardy!

It's just my back garden is a building site and getting Dafs growing in between wood & bricks lol
Would have been nice to have them all together in the Front for all to see driving past Frinton Rd.
