Who can resist the beautiful little faces of a garden full of daffodils that appear to tell us winter is over and Spring is finally here.  They're easy to grow and there are so many gorgeous varieties in white, yellow and orange. Pick a spot for your daffodil bulbs that gets the sun or is partially shaded and that has soil with good drainage. Dwarf varieties are very cute, but make sure you plant them where they can be seen, at the front of your borders or in a pot.

Plant the bulbs a couple of months before the first frost is expected. Turn the soil over with a fork and mix in a little compost for extra nutrients. A good rule of thumb is to plant the bulb in a hole that is about three times deeper than the size of the bulb. Plant it with the pointed end uppermost, cover and press the soil down firmly. Give it a good watering, and wait till spring!
