Daffodils are the essence of spring. If you haven't planted a daffodil what are you waiting for? The cheerful, sunny blooms are perfect to put a smile on your dial. Their feel good colour is big on rewards with minimal effort. These tried and tested varieties are guaranteed to perform and perfect for mass plantings.
Daffodils are easy, they like the simple things in life; plenty of sun and a well drained soil.
Plant Daffodil bulbs three times as deep as the bulb is high with the pointy end up. The depth will protect them from heat and soil erosion as well as providing strength for the stem. Space your Daffodils 10-20cm apart, more if you are leaving the bulbs in to naturalise.
Once the flowering has finished you can remove the flower stem. Allow the foliage to remain until it has yellowed. The Daffodil bulbs use the foliage to gather energy and nutrients at this time for next year’s blooms. Keep the plants relatively moist during this time, and add a little high potash fertiliser. Daffodils like Potash and slow release fertiliser brands which are low in nitrogen (this means more flowers and less foliage). They are not heavy feeders.
