$20.00 $20.00 ( / )

Daffodils wake up early each spring and there are many varieties that go beyond the friendly yellow bloom we know so well. Richly fragrant, these bulbs will spread out or 'naturalize' over the years.

How to Plant

Dig a hole and tuck your bulbs in, pointy side up, about 6" deep (roughly 3 times the size of the bulbs) and about 5" apart. You can plant them closer for a fuller display, but be sure the bulbs don't touch. Now fill in the soil, give it a few solid pats so it compresses around the bulbs, then give it a long drink of water. Mark that pot or spot with your wooden plant marker so you know where your Daffodils live now. Wait for spring. 

Where to Plant

Find a place that gets at least partial sun; 4 or more hours a day.

When to Plant

If planting in a cold region, plant in the fall, anytime before the ground freezes for the last time. If planting in a warm region, (zones 9 and warmer), place your bulbs in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator, in the bags they came in, by themselves (without other produce). Remove from fridge after at least 6 weeks and plant in late winter.

When to Expect Blooms

Mid spring

Care Instructions

Water when soil is dry, once leaves appear.

Extra Credit

If planting in a container, be sure the pot has ample drainage. Fill the bottom 2-3" of the pot with pebbles to prevent clogging. Wait for the foliage to wilt and turn yellow before clipping it back late spring, so that the bulb can store energy for the next year's blooms. When picking flowers for bouquets, be sure to leave at least one leaf per plant.
