Planting Tips

Annual Calendar of Care, Year Round With Your Daffodils

The year for daffodils starts in the fall after their summer respite. Newly purchased bulbs should be planted, existing bulbs start sprouting roots. Miniatures with their small bulbs have their own special requirements; see the article on growing miniatures in north Georgia. Species, species hybrids and most daffodils hybridized before 1900 are much happier with being left alone, and tolerate only judicious, light fertilizing.
