Daffodil Planting Facts & Tips
- Bulbs can be planted in clusters by the hundreds to make a magnificent mass planting.
- Narcissus make wonderful cut flowers to enjoy indoors so don’t be afraid to force them indoors.
- Plant bulbs in a well-drained, sunny place. Keep in mind the trees you plant under may not have leaves in early Spring when the bulb starts to bloom.
- DRAINAGE is the key. Improve your clay with well-rotted compost, soil amendment, or planting mix and raise the bed.
