Daffodils are the very essence of Spring. They provide a dazzling display telling us “Spring is here”. Easy to grow they flower year after year with those famous yellow trumpets that everyone can recognize. Sitting high on 40-60 cm stems they make a great cut flower, or when planted in bold clusters in the garden have a striking effect.
Plant the Daffodils 8-10cm deep, 10-12 cm apart in well worked soil, preferably in a sunny, free draining position. If drainage is a problem, plant shallower and mound the soil over the bulbs. Never cut back or remove the foliage until it has died down naturally.
Daffodils are among the showiest and easiest to grow of Spring flowering bulbs. Available in an incredible array of colours and shapes, they are ideal for the Spring flower garden.
Prepare the soil deeply, mixing in compost, or our Bulb Fertilizer, preferably in a sunny, free draining position.
Daffodil bulbs are best planted in bold clumps, 8-10cm deep and 10-15cm apart.
If drainage is a problem, plant shallower, and mound 7-10cm of soil over the bulbs.
