  1. They really are beautiful. I can see them being used in a flower arrangement. And they wouldn’t be so beautiful and unique without all that swooping and curling. Beautiful photos.

    • Thanks, messyme. At our farmers’ market they sell them in bunches for cooking, and they display them in vases. With the long stalks and curlicues they do look really pretty. Maybe a bouquet of scapes & daffodils?

    • Hi, Louise –

      They’ll burst on their own — and each will put out a LOT of bubils (seeds)! I use the usual rule of thumb for seed-sowing: twice as deep as the seed is long. I find they break through a lot later than soft necks do, but that could just be a result of the local climate.
