Another 6,000 daffodil bulbs planted in Bristol

Posted

The first of two Daffodil Project fall plantings was Saturday, Oct. 7, when about 30 volunteers turned up at the Rhode Island Veterans Home to get some bulbs in the ground. Altogether, 6,000 daffodil bulbs were planted or sold for planting on private property.

According to Pam Delaney, who has been coordinating the project for the Bristol Garden Club, they will be selling bulbs for the next two Saturdays at the Mount Hope Farm farmers market, with the next planting scheduled for Oct. 17.

“We hope to have another 10,000 in the ground by the first freeze, bringing the total since fall of 2020 to more than 30,000,” said Delaney.

The Daffodil Project, launched in 2020, aims to establish one million daffodil bulbs in Bristol, creating a pathway of daffodils through public and private lands.
