Why Are Daffodils Wonderful Bulbs To Plant?

Daffodils are hardy and easy perennials to grow in most regions of North America, except Southern Florida. Plant the bulbs in the fall and they will bloom in late winter or early spring.

Their attractive flowers usually bear showy yellow or white flowers with six petals and a trumpet-shape central corona. Leafless stems bear between 1 and 20 flowers; sometimes the flowers need to be staked so that they don’t weigh down the stems.

Daffodils are suitable for planting between shrubs or in a border, or for forcing blooms indoors. They also look wonderful in a woodland garden and in large groves.

PLANTING

• Select a site that offers full sun or part shade.
• Most daffodils tolerate a range of soils but grow best in moderately fertile, well-drained soil
that is kept moist during the growing season.

• Many of the popular species prefer neutral to acidic soils, but some prefer slightly alkaline
soils, so consult your local nursery to see which is best for your daffodil variety.

• Select high-quality daffodil bulbs that have not dried out. The larger the bulb, the better.
• Plant daffodil bulbs in the fall—about 2 to 4 weeks before the ground freezes.

CARE

• Apply a low-nitrogen, high-potash (potassium) fertilizer after flowering if bulbs are not
performing as desired.

• Water late-flowering daffodils in dry spring weather (flowers may abort in dry conditions).
• Deadhead plants as flowers fade (for neater garden appearance) and allow leaves to remain
for at least 6 weeks

In general use a soil-based compost placed over a generous layer of drainage material such as earthenware crocks, pebbles or gravel. Water and feed regularly, especially while plants are bearing flowers and fruit, when a high-potash fertilizer is recommended.
