Daffodils (or Narcissus if you prefer) are easy. They like plenty of sun and a well drained soil. Plant as many as space permits because daffodils are a great bulb for lazy gardeners.

Tip: If after four or five years you notice that your daffodil bulbs are producing lots of foliage but not many flowers, your bulbs may have multiplied and be suffering from overcrowding. This is great news. Simply allow the flowers and foliage to die back naturally over Spring. Then around the end of November/start of December, dig them up, shake of the excess dirt, store them somewhere cool (low to mid 20c is fine) and airy over Summer, then replant them around Mother’s day.
