How to care for Ready to Bloom Narcissus Baskets

Set the pot of Narcissus bulbs in a sunny location outside. They will endure spring’s freezing and thawing temperatures, and precipitation, with minimal care. There is no need to fertilize. Water when the potting mix is dry to the touch. We recommend removing the pots from the basket before watering. Please note that the growth of the bulbs will be slower in colder temperatures and faster in warmer temperatures. Bulbs usually begin blooming 4-6 weeks after arrival.

What you do with your bulbs after they bloom depends on your climate and your inclinations. The Daffodils bulbs can be planted outdoors if they are hardy in your area, and most are hardy to zone 4 or 5. If you choose to plant your Daffodils, plant in the ground at a depth equivalent to about three times the bulb's height. Expect 2 or more years to pass before the bulbs will bloom again. We treat our forced Daffodils as a one time show and generally compost after the blooming. However, we know of customers who enjoy the process and don't mind the wait for Daffodils to rebloom in future seasons.
