Daffodils, also known as narcissus and jonquil, are the easiest bulbs to grow. Like all bulbs, they need well-drained soil and a winter freeze.
However, full sun or even light shade will do. Daffodils are one of the most resilient and hardy of all bulbs.
Daffodils like full-sun or partial-sun and need well-drained soil. Daffodils can grow well beneath leafy trees as they will finish blooming before the trees have leafed out.
Daffodils thrive when the weather is cool, so, in general, fall planting bulbs should be planted when the soil temperature is cooler than 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
1. Daffodils like well-drained, enriched garden soil; they do not like hard clay soil. 2. Plant six weeks before you expect frost and up to a hard freeze.
If you do dig your bulbs, wash them, and allow them to dry very thoroughly (1 week or so). Then you can store them in a cool, well-ventilated place.
