Beauty is popping-up all around and it appears the bulbs may have tripled in the fertile soil of Miss Meadows since last year. Stay tuned for the full-field pictures and official counts!
Our “test harvest” of approximately 500 bulbs went according to plan. All bulbs harvested show signs of a healthy multiplication.
The next step will be to dry the bulbs for a couple of months and get them to market in the Fall.

The Miss Meadows team is always looking to learn more about how to cultivate and care for the farm properly.
Dr. Ted Snazelle, Professor and Chair Emeritus Biological Sciences at Mississippi College and daffodil expert, honored us with a visit to the farm and allowed us to ask many questions.
Special thanks to our new friend, Dr. Ted Snazelle, who was so kind as to answer all of our questions about daffodil farming. Ted, our Miss Meadows team is forever in your debt!
The harvest of blooms for the first year exceeded our wildest imaginations!
Harvesting the Daffodil Blooms
March and April realized our fields-of-daffodils dreams. Almost all of the 10 varieties of daffodils planted in the fertile fields of Miss Meadows thrived and produced beautiful blooms. We harvested the bounty of blooms to share them with the community and ensure the bulbs can reclaim the foliage’s energy for the winter.
We picked over 15,000 blooms in 2016 and were able to share with them with the community, friends, and family!
Please contact us if you would like some of next year’s bounty!
After much hard work, our first bloom of the 2016 season has arrived!
It’s only fitting that the Dutch Master, America’s Favorite Daffodil, was the first of our ten varieties to blossom.
