Plant daffodil bulbs for cheerful spring blooms

Daffodils, sometimes called trumpet narcissus, are a bulb-forming plant in the amaryllis family. Planting daffodils means that you will have a cheerful welcomer of spring in your yard for years to come. Typically, daffodils bloom as soon as the weather starts to warm, being one of the first perennials to show themselves. They look incredible when planted en masse, along borders, or even in containers. Many gardeners enjoy the effect of color-blocking with daffodils, while others prefer to mix different daffodil varieties for a more natural look. Whatever style of planting you choose, daffodils are an excellent choice for almost any yard.

Daffodil bulbs are easy to plant

Daffodil bulbs are incredibly easy to plant and require the most minimal of effort and time. They should be planted in the fall, up until the end of December-providing you can still work the soil. To begin planting, you will first need to find the best location for for the daffodil's preferences. Shade is tolerated, but an area that receives sunlight is best. Look for a spot with rich, well-draining soil. Some dampness will be tolerated, but do not plant daffodil bulbs in a spot that attracts standing water for any prolonged period of time.

Once you have selected the ideal spot for your daffodils, plant the bulbs around four or five inches apart and about six inches deep. It is typically advised to plant daffodil bulbs in groups of at least 30. However, be sure not to crowd the bulbs too close together as this runs the risk of inhibiting future growth.

How to care for daffodils

Once all the daffodil bulbs are planted, it is recommended to supplement the existing soil with a rich top soil to stimulate the propagation. The use of fertilizer is also a great addition, tho it is not necessary. Once all of your bulbs have been planted, it is best to water the site regularly, taking care not to overwater. Once the daffodils bloom in the spring, wait for all of the foliage had turned brown naturally before cutting or trimming. Take care not to cut the foliage prematurely, as this runs the risk of inhibiting growth in subsequent years.
