Daffodil, Double Mix

Double Daffodils might have extra petals present, have a double trumpet, or have both; this double effect makes a very interesting flower that will add a special touch to any garden or landscape. We give you one of the most popular fluffy, frilly and fragrant Dutch flowers in this exciting mix. They are easy to grow in well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade and are well known to be deer resistant. Daffodidl are easy to grow and are well known to be deer resistant. Daffodil require minimum care. Allow the foliage to die back naturally. Lift dead foliage when it can be removed with minimal effort and these bulbs will return spring after spring. Flowers should be cut when petals begin to fade, so they won't go to seed. Seed formation drains off the food bulbs need to produce next year's growth. Leaves should be allowed to die back naturally before removing.

If planted in well-drained soil, daffodils are virtually disease and trouble free. Once finished flowering, allow foliage to flop over and dry out. Divide if flower production or size has dwindled. Daffodils are ideal for naturalizing (they bloom every spring) and may be planted anywhere in your landscape, in sun or shade, along borders, in groups along a fence or around a tree or mailbox. Daffodils look best in mass plantings. They make good container plants and are delightful cut flowers.
