More than 100,000 daffodils are expected bloom across Queens next spring thanks to a bulb-planting program led by New Yorkers for Parks. 

New Yorkers for Parks plans to hand out about 500,000 daffodil bulbs to neighborhood groups from across the city this fall. The program, called the Daffodil Project, has been held annually for the last 17 years to honor the victims of 9/11.

About 110 Queens neighborhood associations, school PTAs, nonprofits and other groups have already signed up to plant bulbs in public places in their communities. Approximately 118,000 bulbs were planted in Queens last year.
