When you think of spring, daffodils are usually the first thing that come to mind. Formerly the 'King Alfred' Daffodil, our 'Dutch Master' Daffodil is a traditional yellow daffodil with a large yellow trumpet and sturdy green stem. Blooming mid-spring, the Dutch Master loves the sun and the partial shade and it will do well in beds and borders and containers. Symbolic for new beginnings & to ensure happiness! Official flower for March & December Birthdays and 10yr wedding anniversaries!

  • Daffodils perform best in full sun to light shade.
  • Plant daffodils when temperatures have cooled in your area September through December. Once your daytime temperatures are in the 60’s or lower consistently, this is a good time to plant your daffodils.
  • Proper drainage is critical to the daffodils success. Amend your soil with top soil and organic matter such as compost, manure or peat most prior to planting. You soil should be light and easy to work with. The addition of Kelp Meal to your planting area will help the daffodil bulbs establish strong roots.
  • Large 14/16 cm daffodils should be planted 6-8” deep with the pointed side facing the sky. Miniature daffodils are often smaller bulbs and should be planted 3-4” deep, also with the pointed side up.
  • Space daffodils 4-6” apart when planting individual bulbs. For mass planting and brilliant bursts of color in the garden, plant the bulbs 2-4” apart in bouquet planting groups, trenches and garden beds.
  • Immediately after planting, water the daffodil planting area. This helps to eliminate air pockets. After the initial planting bulbs do not require additional watering in fall or winter and prefer to be kept dry.
  • Apply a 2” layer of mulch in late fall.
