Looking After the Daffodils in your Gardens
Daffodils are some of the most spectacular spring flowers to grow, with their beautiful yellow trumpets and strong upright stems. They will usually begin to bloom around March time but they can come out earlier if the weather has been warmer. Here are some useful tips if you want to successfully grow daffodils and make the most of your flowers:
- Buy high-quality bulbs from a reputable supplier. You can buy your bulbs in a shop or on the internet, as long as you know the supplier is selling you good bulbs that haven’t dried out.
- Plant the bulbs in well-drained soil. Daffodils are not difficult to grow but they will grow best in this kind of soil.
- Think about the type of daffodil you want to grow. Choose varieties from a catalogue based on appearance and suitability. Some beautiful varieties to consider are the Cheerfulness, February Gold and Fragrant Rose.
