When to plant your Electra Daffodil bulbs
Plant Electra Daffodil (Narcissus) bulbs in the fall for spring blooms. The best time is when night temperatures start to drop below 40F degrees. In northern climates it is best to plant in October-November, in southern climates you can wait until November-December. In hot climates plant in the spring after the bulbs have been pre-chilled in a cooler for 8 weeks. If you miss planting your bulbs at the preferred time, don’t wait for spring or next fall. Daffodil bulbs aren’t like seeds! They need a period of cool time. Even if you discover an unplanted stack of tulips or daffodils in January or February, go ahead and plant them if the ground can still be worked, or plant in pots. Better to take your chances than saving them for next season. You may even get blooms the same year!
How to plant Narcissus bulbs
Daffodils can be grown in various ways and locations: inside or outside; in soil or on water (hydroponically); in crates, pots, ground beds or raised beds; in cold or warmer climates.
Chose a sunny location with good drainage. In colder climates, your bulbs will multiply each year and grow into clusters, so allow for enough room for the plants to spread. Space your daffodils 10” apart, dig a hole that is 8” deep (three times the height of the bulb) and set the bulb in the hole with the pointy side up. Critters won’t bother your bulbs, neither will deer.
After the Daffodils are done blooming, clip off any spent blooms to prevent them from going to seed. Let the leaves grow for another two months before mowing the greens down, so the bulbs can store new energy to multiply and bloom again the following year.
