Planting daffodils bulbs for spring blooms is the best time to plant them. Daffodil bulbs are dormant in winter, and will flower once they re-awaken in early spring (late February or early March). If you dig up your garden’s daffodil bulbs before this time of year, they will not be able to bloom until next year.
What kind of soil do I need to grow daffodils?
Daffodils prefer a rich loamy soil but can also tolerate sandy soils with good drainage. They can take fairly poor soil conditions as long as it is well-drained. The plants are somewhat intolerant of salinity so avoid planting them near salt marshes or along shores where high levels of salt have accumulated over the years.
How large should my planted area be? Where should I place my bed? Where should I put my planter box/drainage system/etc.? Where should I plant other flowers around my daffodils? Is there any special information about container gardening that applies to growing dahlias & tulips too, since these two bulb types are similar in size and require similar care requirements when grown outside the ground?!
