Everyone knows the joy that daffodils bring to the garden when they bloom in the spring. This Double Daffodil Mix is sure to double that pleasure when fully double flowers approximately 4" across burst into bloom. The center of each flower has a full, double set of frilly inner petals of yellow, white, or orange growing amid long, narrow gray-green foliage. Grow them in beds, borders, and containers, and even on the lawn.
Growing Instructions: Select a spot in the garden that receives full sun to part shade where the soil drains well. Loosen the soil, and plant the bulbs, pointy end up, approximately 6" deep and 4-6" apart. Tamp down the soil and water well after planting. Foliage should be left to die back naturally as it provides the nutrients the bulbs will need to grow and flower the following year. Bulbs may also be planted in containers and tubs at the same depth. Planting tip: For a more natural look, plant daffodils in clusters rather than in straight lines. To achieve a naturalized look, they can also be planted in the lawn. Toss handfuls of bulbs onto the desired area of the lawn and plant them where they fall. Just don't mow the lawn until the leaves of the daffodils have died down.
