The best time to plant daffodils is usually late October, or around the first frost, when the ground has cooled but remains workable. Though they'll often tolerate a range of conditions, daffs prefer direct sunlight and well-drained soil. A general rule of thumb: Plant each bulb, tip up, at a depth three times the bulb's height, spacing the bulbs about six inches apart. One exception: Gardeners in very cold or warm climates should consider planting a couple inches deeper — and adding a layer of mulch atop the soil — to help insulate the bulbs from extreme temperatures. Bloom times, too, can vary by region, so the daffodils below are organized according to when they typically flower — from very early spring all the way into the beginning of summer.
