Daffodil Planting Facts & Tips

Daffodil Feild

Daffodils are perfect to plant in between shrubs and trees in shade areas. They also look wonderful in a woodland garden borders that need color. I love adding them under my conifers along the woodline. It is the one plant the deer and rabbit do not seem to bother.  Below are a few tips for planting the daffodil. I’ve been planting these bulbs in my garden for over 20 years.  Some have survived and some did not.  I am sure with you what works for me at keeping the bulb blooming for many years.
  • 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.

  1. My favorite thing about spring is the warm up. Everything emerges – leaves, flowers, bugs, birds, animals, people. It’s actually pretty cool. The world comes out to play.
