Best Locations For Daffodils to Thrive

If you want your daffodils to bloom and not suffer from diseases and pests, thrive, and persist for a long time, you need to choose a suitable location. But where do these early bloomers feel best?

Daffodils are children of the sun

In order to sprout early in the year and produce brightly colored flowers, daffodils need a sunny location. They also do well in semi-shade. They should not be planted in the shade as they will not flower there.

How should the ground be?

Daffodils don’t need special soil. But they are grateful for a medium to high nutrient content. It is therefore advisable to add some compost to the soil when planting the bulbs. Other Beneficial Earth Traits:

  • slightly acidic to neutral
  • permeable
  • loamy
  • wet


It is better to choose a sheltered location for tall types of daffodils to prevent that stems from overbending.

I studied horticulture at the University of Guelph and in my free time I plant everything that has roots on a piece of land. The topic of self-sufficiency and seasonal nutrition is particularly close to my heart. Favorite fruit: quince, corner, and blueberry Favorite vegetables: peas, tomatoes, and garlic
