Growing Daffodils

yellow daffodil flowers daffodils flower bloom blooms

Daffodils are very easy to grow and easy to plant. Most daffodils bulbs can be bought at most nurseries and home improvement centers at the start of fall season because its the best time to plant daffodils. Find a sunny spot in your yard with lots of sunshine and has well-drained soil. Once you have the perfect spot to plant your daffodils, dig 3-4 inches diameter holes, or enough to fit each bulb into. Holes should be around 8 to 12 inches distance from each other to allow room for growth of each bulb and promote plant multiplication. Holes should be around 4-5 inches deep. Place each bulb in a hole, cover the holes with bulbs with the loose soil. To encourage great flower blooms, you can sprinkle some bulb foods around the covered hole. Water everyday the area after planting, enough to keep the soil moist and encourage growth. Do not over water to avoid soaking the bulbs too much that may cause the bulbs to rot.

My daffodils have been neglected and I never supplied any bulb food. I think I have lost some bulbs this year. Thanks for sharing tips to encourage the flower to bloom.

usually once the daffofil plants become established, they grow back year after year sometimes even without bulb food and drout times but they dont flower as nice, based on our daffodils, some dont grow back as well like when weather was intense the bulbs probably rot, or got eaten by the moles
