Care instructions

Put in a little and get back a lot!

Daffodil Plant Care

  •  Water your daffodils with 1/4 cup of water per week.
  •  The best thing you can do for your Daffodil bulbs is to provide them with a rich, well-drained soil.
  •  After plants are finished flowering, cut back flower stalks but allow the leaves to die back naturally,
  •  When cut, daffodils should be kept alone in a vase, as their stems secrete a fluid that promotes the wilting of other flowers.
  •  Note that contact with the sap of daffodils may irritate skin or aggravate skin allergies
