Grow some Dazzling Daffodils!

Daffodil bulbs, also known as Narcissus, are one of the most spectacular bulb to plant in your garden. They have cheerful yellow blooms in spring, they are perfect to grow in pots or on your garden, and they are squirrel and rabbit resistant. A group of Daffodils can bloom repeatedly in your garden for months in the spring. If you plant them in a sunny location with well drained soil Daffodils will return to bloom again for many years. Our selection still includes over 30 varieties of Daffodils for you to choose from.

The most popular daffodil has to be the King Alfred Daffodil. This variety is indeed the King as it has one of the largest blooms. Growing to between 12 and 16 inches (30 to 40 cm) tall they will produce an abundant grouping of flowers in mid spring (March and April).

Planting Bulbs is as easy as “Dig, Drop, Done”!

If you have never tried growing spring flowering bulbs in the past because you thought they were to much work you might be surprised to find out just how easy they are to grow. All you have to do is Dig a small hole, Drop the bulb into the hole, fill the hole in with soil and a little fertilizer, and you’re Done! Your bulbs grow roots during the winter and will sprout out of the ground next spring. Different bulbs bloom at different times and if you plant a variety of bulbs you can have colourful blooms from February right through June. Some of the most popular varieties include Snowdrops, Crocus, Daffodils, and Tulips. But you can also choose from Alliums, Anemone, Chionodoxa, Hyacinths, Iris, Muscari, and Scilla.

The best time to plant the spring flowering bulbs is during September and October when the weather is normally better. You can also plant during November and December but it might be a bit cold and wet outside. You can plant your bulbs here on the west coast as late as January and still have them flower the following spring although it is not recommended as they might not develop enough roots to bloom properly.
