#ProPlantTips for Care:

Daffodil bulbs are easy to care for! Plant 6-8 inches deep at least 3-inches apart with the pointed end facing upward. They must have well-drained soil and lots of sunshine all growing season. In colder zones, plant deeper and mulch well so they can survive the winter. Add bulb fertilizer to each hole for best results. Deer and rodent resistant, there are no pests or disease issues to worry about with Daffodils. In fact, their only issue is with soggy soil that will rot the bulbs.

  • Full Sun or Partial Shade
  • Moderately Moist Well-Drained Soil
  • Deadhead After Bloom, Prune to Ground When Leaves Yellow
  • Very Cold Hardy
  • Deer & Rodent Resistant
