Upon receipt of your plants, unpack and unwrap the roots and mist with water. Plant within 24-48 hours. If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily. Cover them back up with the plastic so they will not dry out until you can plant them. After planted, water every evening after the sun goes down for 5 days.

Hardy Planting Zone: Most daffodil varieties thrive in USDA hardiness zones 3 to 9.
Bloom Season: Bulbs should be planted in the fall. Reliably early bloomers, these carefree flowers typically make their appearance in late winter and early spring. Depending on the variety, one to as many as twenty flowers can appear on a single stem.
Bloom Color: Daffodils are known traditionally for their varying shades of yellow, but also appear in whites and creams, apricots, oranges, greens, and pinks.
Height at Maturity: Daffodils typically grow to 12 to 18 inches at maturity.
Soil Type Preferred: Daffodils do best in neutral or somewhat acidic soils. As they grow from bulbs, care should be taken to ensure soil is well-drained to prevent rot. If your daffodils fail to flower as well as you would prefer, adding low nitrogen, high potash fertilizer after the flowering season has passed can bring better results.
Sun Or Shade: Bulbs should be planted in areas receiving full sun to partial shade.
Daffodils, botanical name narcissus, are the consummate spring-flowering bulbs, easy to grow and easy to care for.
There are over fifty species of daffodils that fall into thirteen different types based on the form of the flower within the surrounding petals. There are also some 25,000 registered hybrids. From cheery yellow large-cup trumpets to delicate paperwhites to elegant, double-trumpet, petit four cultivars, these fragrant, winter hardy flowers will make any spring garden come alive with color.
They are repellent to deer, rabbits, squirrels, and most other wild animals, so gardeners should have little worry that their "crops" of color will get eaten by unwanted visitors.
Some of the most common daffodils include the bright yellow Dutch Master, of the trumpet variety, as well as the Pheasant's Eye, recognized for its white petals surrounding a red-rimmed yellow cup.
