The King Alfred Daffodil is one of the most recognizable daffodils on the market. With its bright golden-yellow, large trumpet blooms, this is bound to bring joy to any Spring blooming garden! King Alfred Daffodils are ideal for mass plantings and have excellent naturalizing capabilities. The jumbo sized 16/18 cm bulbs perform best in well-drained soil, in part to full sun, blooming in Mid-Spring.

  • 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.
  • Jumbo and Large 14/18 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.
