Trumpeting the coming of spring,
cheerful yellow daffodils
are always a welcome sight.
The catch is, they require advanced planning.
You can't run to the garden center when spring fever hits,
and buy some daffodils to throw into the garden.
Fall is the time to plant bulbs for spring bloom.
Ideally, they should be planted several weeks or a month
before the ground is frozen to allow time for establishment.
But bulbs can be planted as long as the ground is sitll workable in the fall.
While you're planning ahead, consider interplanting daffodils and daylilies.
|Daylily foliage looks similar to that of daffodils.|
