Daffodils in the Garden
There are many ways to grow daffodils in the garden, but it is important to choose a method that will allow for optimal bloom and bloom time.
For example, the main factors to consider for successful blooms are the time of year when the daffodils
are purchased, the amount of sunlight available, and the amount of moisture needed to grow healthy bulbs.
The number one culprit of failure in gardeners is the lack of sunlight.
In order to get the most out of your daffodils, you should plant them in a sunny location.
