Daffodil Planting Instructions
- You do not require a large space to plant the bulbs.
- For every 250 bulbs, you will need approximately 30 square feet in any combination.
- Plant the daffodils 3-4 inches deep and 2-3 inches apart.
- Plant approximately 7-10 bulbs in a 1 foot circle with 1-3 bulbs in the center.
- Wait until all bulbs have been planted prior to covering with soil and then mulching.
- Once you have planted, mulch and water the bed. There is very little further maintenance.
- Once the daffodils bloom, they should be left to yellow and wither (otherwise they will not be able to produce flowers the following year). Dead-heading is recommended for the best re-flowering but is not required. Fertilizer is not needed if you mulch your bulbs annually with 2-3 inches of an organic mulch.
