No spring garden is complete without daffodils. You really can’t have too many, either, as they’re almost always the only plants blooming in the garden during the early spring. Daffodils are some of the easiest spring flowering bulbs to grow, and are perennial, so they reliably come back year after year.   I love daffodils, but I never plant them alone. If I'm going to dig a hole for bulbs, I want maximum results for my efforts, so daffodils and companion bulbs get planted together. Always. In general, bulbs should be planted at a depth equal to 2 to 3 times their diameter. For daffodil bulbs, that generally means digging a hole 4 to 6 inches deep.
