When & How To Plant

To plant daffodil bulbs effectively, timing and preparation are crucial. Aim to plant daffodil bulbs between late September and early November, ensuring the soil temperature is below 60°F (15°C) for root establishment before winter. Before you prepare the soil, make sure you choose a sunny and well-drained location to plant them. Prepare the soil by loosening it to a depth of 12-15 inches and, for the best results, mixing in compost or well-rotted manure. Plant the bulbs 6-8 inches deep, spaced 4-6 inches apart, with the pointy end up. Water thoroughly after planting to settle the soil and initiate rooting. Apply a 2–3-inch layer of mulch to insulate the bulbs and retain moisture. As winter sets in, add more mulch to provide additional insulation. Remove the mulch as temperatures rise in spring to allow shoots to emerge.

For those who wish to use daffodils as cut flowers throughout the entire blooming season, consider planting the bulbs at different intervals. Stagger the planting over a few weeks to ensure a continuous supply of blooms. When it’s time to harvest, cut the daffodils when the buds are fully colored but still closed. Cut the stems diagonally with a sharp knife, and immediately place them in a bucket of lukewarm water. Remove any leaves that would be submerged in water to prevent decay. To extend their vase life, keep the cut daffodils in a cool place, away from direct sunlight and drafts. Recut the stems and change the water every two days. Following these steps will ensure a vibrant display of tulips both in the garden and in your home as cut flowers throughout the entire season.

Customer Testimonials

These bulbs are fabulous! Brilliant colours, sturdy stalks and the plant first season is full and leafy. Sometimes the first sprouting, the plants are a little scrawny, but these bulbs are well-sized with many flower stalks. The orange and yellows are vibrant, and the frilly edges are something I had not seen before.

It at be pre-mature giving this a five star review so early. I have never purchased this before so I have high hopes. I’m going off my last experience purchasing here before, timely shipment, and healthy looking plant.


This fall, I purchased a ridiculous amount of bulbs in hopes for an amazing spring presentation. Every year, I only order from Nagel Gladiolus Bulbs and it doesn’t disappoint. I also order for my mother’s yard as her Mother’s Day present. All the bulbs were healthy and nice.


These were the first to pop and bloom for me this year. Filled the yard with yellow sunshine and just pure JOY! They lasted just until the last two days of May this year and I honestly can't wait to order more for next year!


I am a huge Nagel Gladiolus Bulbs fan. I’m quite embarrassed by the total transaction dollar amount I’ve spent here. When you find a good supplier, you stick with them. These bulbs are healthy, large, and ready to plant. I can wait to see what spring brings.


I ordered these along with some other bearded iris, and every single rhizome was healthy and had tiny green shoots when they arrived. I've never received bulbs or rhizomes from other companies in such great condition. As soon as I planted them they started growing, and are still growing now into winter, even after snow and frost.


This was part of the "Waves of Purple Bearded Iris Collection." They arrived as expected and in great condition. I am very much looking forward to seeing them grow and bloom next spring. I also had an issue with my order, but Holland and Bulbs exceeded my expectations with their custom service and commitment to their customers.
