How to Grow Narcissi:

Plant Narcissi bulbs in the fall. Plant about two to four weeks before the ground freezes to allow the roots to develop underground. Plant them 6-8 inches deep. Space plants three to six inches apart. Note, that Narcissi will tolerate some crowding.Sprinkle a little bulb fertilizer in the hole during planting. For established beds, spread the fertilizer on top of the soil. You can work it in lightly, but you risk damaging the bulbs. As natives to woodland areas, Narcissi will grow well in shade to full sun. After they bloom in the spring, allow the plants to grow until they die off. They need time after blooming to store energy in the bulbs for next year. To remove the dead plant, either snip them off at the base, or twist the leaves while pulling lightly.
