Now's the time to pick up a bargain bulb or two. Many supermarkets are selling mixed packs of daffodil bulbs. If you fancy something more unusual then online suppliers such as crocus.co.uk have a tempting selection, often on bulk deals at this time of year.
Plant bulbs pointy end up, flat end down twice as deep as the bulb is long. Put some grit in the planting hole first if your soil needs it to stop the bulbs getting soggy.
Daffodils will push their way through grassy corners every year. They will do well along the edges of perennial beds or lining pathways around your plot. They are low maintenance – just don't cut back daffodil foliage after flowering. Deadhead then let the remaining leaves die back naturally, recharging the bulb for next year's display.
