Early Growth of Daffodils

It’s November and my daffodils are starting to grow.  I can see small green leaves peeking through the ground.  What should I do?

Nothing, right now.  Warm fall weather can cause many plants, including spring flowering bulbs, to send out new growth.   You can't stop this process, but you can help minimize the impact.  Once the ground lightly freezes, cover the plantings with evergreen branches, straw or marsh hay.  This winter mulch will help protect the plants and prevent further growth during any warm spells this winter.
