Planting Daffodils

You’ll start seeing sacks of daffodil bulbs in the garden shops about this time of year.

a few hints on planting them:

1. Scatter them under trees and plant where they land. This will give a natural feel to their planting.

2. Use them in tubs by your front door with pansys and mini conifers.

3. Buy different types. Different colours and singles and doubles.

4. Any you have that has stopped flowering as well are probably all too close together – they multiply by growing new bulbs so dig up and spread them out more.

5. Plant them deeply enough. IF the ground is too hard then dig another bit!

6. Plant the flat end down! The more pointed end is the top!
