Daffodils – Planting Depth

Q: The label on my bag of daffodils recommends they be planted eight inches deep. I think this is too deep. Do you have a preference?

A: In typical heavy Georgia soil, planting daffodils so that the top is buried under a couple of inches of soil works fine. If we had more severe winters, planting deeper would make sense but I don’t think you need to do that. The University of Georgia has an excellent publication about growing bulbs in Georgia at bit.ly/UGAbulbs. (broken link)
