Helen’s helpful husband, Dave had unpacked the shopping and put the flowers in the fridge – after mistaking them for spring onions.

The daffodils had been lying amongst the vegetables in the fridge for three whole days before being discovered on Saturday evening.

Helen who runs a lifestyle blog, shared the funny story on her Twitter page.

She wrote: “Funny story. I ordered some daffs from asda this week which didn’t turn up so I complained and got a refund. 

“Turns out Dave thought they were spring onions and they’ve been in the fridge for the last 3 days.”

The tweet has received 87.6k likes and thousands of retweets. 

One Twitter user wrote:  “As a greengrocer, I can confirm this happens on a very regular basis.”

Another said: “This made me laugh out loud. Bless him!”

One wrote: “This is seriously dangerous. My mum and brother once ate daffodil bulbs by mistake thinking they were onions. 

“Both were violently sick for days. No stupid jokes about coming out in the spring – please be careful folks.”

Another added: “Daffodils are poisonous and should definitely not be eaten! 

“Although I think this is more the bulbs than stalks and flowers, mixing them up can be fatal.”

Helen placed the flowers in water after their chilly adventure and was thrilled when they still bloomed.
