Daffodil Bulbs: Fall Planted Perennial Bulb

How Plant

Planting Bulbs in Fall:

  • Because your bulbs will probably be left where you plant them for several years, good soil preparation is highly desirable. Daffodils grow best in full sun in a light, well-drained soil enriched with organic matter. Loose, crumbly soil beneath a bulb encourages good growth and promotes drainage; it is a good idea to prepare the soil at least a few inches deeper than the recommended planting depth. Check the proposed site for standing water after a rainfall. If you must plant where the soil is known to remain wet, raise the soil level by 6-12 inches above the surrounding soil.
  • It is a good idea to add fertilizer, such as Bulb-tone, when you prepare the soil. Be sure to mix the fertilizer into the soil so it does not come into direct contact with the bulbs.
  • The general rule for planting is to cover the bulb with soil to 3 times its vertical diameter. In very cold climates, or where the soil is very light and sandy, plant a little deeper. In heavy soils, or in areas with a high water table, plant slightly more shallowly. Plant all bulbs of a kind, when grouped together, at the same depth so they will bloom at the same time and attain the same height.
  • For planting clumps of bulbs in beds and borders, dig a hole large enough to hold all the bulbs in one group or drift. Set them upright at the bottom of the hole, tops up (pointed side up), and space properly. Press the bulbs into the soil and cover with the prepared soil to the recommended depth. You can also use a trowel to dig individual holes.
  • Daffodils should be planted 6-8 inches deep, 4-6 inches apart.
  • After planting water thoroughly to settle the soil and to encourage the start of root growth. Sufficient moisture is vital to the health of your bulbs; lacking ample rain, it may be necessary to water new plantings once a week in fall. The roots will continue to grow in fall until the soil freezes.
  • Be sure to mark where you planted your bulbs so you know where they are in spring.
  • Add 1-3 inches of mulch for winter protection after the ground freezes.

How to Grow

  • Flower bulbs also require watering after blooming, while the foliage is ripening. Water weekly if conditions are dry.
  • In spring after flo0wering do not cut the foliage off; the foliage is part of the perennial growth cycle. Allow it to die back naturally. Do not braid daffodil foliage, allow maximum exposure of the green plant part to the sun.

Growing Tips

  • Dig up and separate daffodils after several years if blooming becomes sparse.

Daffodils 100 Days is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful results! I ordered these last fall along with several varieties of tulips, some crocuses, and a few specialty bulbs. My wonderful husband planted them all, starting in early November and planting the last dozen daffodils in early January - we had a weird winter in central Indiana. One variety of tulip suffered from a deer attack but everything else bloomed beautifully. The earliest daffodils started in mid-February and the last ones are blooming now 5-20-16! I'm really looking forward to this fall, when I won't have to ask him to planting anything and to next February when the show begins again!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mediocre preformer I bought this item the fall of 2012 and planted in a southern exposure in front of the house. We had a long winter in western WI so by the time the spring bulbs were up and blooming it was the end of May and beginning of June this year. I was so looking forward to the variety and length of bloom that this item was suppose to provide. In reality I had about 12 standard solid yellow daffodils bloom out of the bunch. Overall, I wasn't very impressed. I'll see what happens next year.
