Planting Daffodil Bulbs

Each spring, the daffodil will re-emerge from the earth to announce the coming of spring. To make sure that your daffodils will continue to appear, plant your daffodil bulbs in an optimal spot in your garden. Daffodils like the sun and will do best in a location that gets about six hours of sun each day. This will also ensure that the bulbs will keep on working even after the flowers have faded, preparing for next spring.

Daffodils must be planted in autumn so that they will bloom in spring.

  • Loosen up the soil and mix in some specialty flower bulb fertiliser before planting
  • Dig a trench that is a few centimetres deep and plant the bulbs 5-10cm apart with the point facing upwards.
  • Make sure you plant your daffodil bulbs in well-drained soil as they do not like it too wet

Taking care of Daffodils

After planting, water your bulbs and continue to do so periodically. After the flowers have withered, cut away the dead leaves. This will guarantee that the bulb can put all its energy towards next years daffodils.
