Daffodil (Narcissus)

Daffodils

Cheerful daffodils are some of the first flowers to bloom, signaling the beginning of the growing season—a delightful sight to any gardener!

Plant daffodil bulbs from September through November in moist, well-drained soil that's neutral to mildly acidic (pH 6.5). Before planting, place bone meal or slow-release bulb fertilizer in the hole and lightly mix with the soil. As a general guide, plant these large bulbs 6" deep and 6" apart, ensuring the pointed part faces up toward the sky and the flat part faces down. An area with full sun or light shade is preferable.
