Description

If you just love all the daffodil colors, this is the mix for you. These bulbs are landscape size' which means they are smaller than some, but all of blooming size--these are the ones used in parks and commercial plantings. The mix includes all the best plus some of the cluster-flowered types, doubles, and more. You'll also have all the successful bi-colors. Brilliant orange cups on snow white petals, orange cups on golden petals, the famous yellow cupped one with the cup ringed in deep orange, plus pure yellow of course. All these are as hardy as the basic yellow trumpet, the only difference is you'll have all the colors.

So don't hesitate. With this mix, you can plant just a few or a whole acre, and in spring, they'll all be there to light up your life. You can't have too many of these, and planting is easy:

Naturalizing Daffodils. Probably nothing in the gardening world is more foolproof and more rewarding than 'naturalizing' daffodils. Because unlike most other garden flowers, these fantastic plants are super-easy to plant in fall, they don't care about soil, as long as it's well-drained, and they'll bloom beautifully for you with absolutely no work every spring after you plant them. Best of all, daffodils increase over the years, each bulb developing into a blooming clump. All you have to do is pick the spots. The one thing to remember is that you won't be able to mow that area until the tops die down. Everything else takes care of itself. In a new or established wildflower meadow, the wildflower plants grow up around the daffodils hiding the fading foliage, so there's no work to do. And if you're planting wildflower seed, what could be easier that to pop in the bulbs when you have the ground already turned?'

I have a field and a wooded area that I'm trying to plant things in that are easy to take care of and daffodils ad a lot of color in the spring. Bulbs are the best way to do this. They require no care after they are planted. The deer and other animals don't bother them. It's sure nice after a cold winter to have them blooming. I received them in time to plant in the fall. All of my bulbs came in good shape and had directions on how to plant them. Thanks, American Meadows!

Low price for large amount of bulbs. 100% deer proof. Easy to plant, low maintenance.
Bulbs were to be a mix of colors but only one color given. Not a mix at all. Disappointing just for that. Not at all like the multiple pictures shown on site.
I will say the blooms were pretty and all bulbs bloomed.

                            In the Fall I question why I ordered 300 daffodil bulbs, but come Spring I know why. These bulbs are large and bloom year after year. I probably have over a thousand planted by now! I naturalize them along my wood's edge and it is a sight to behold with the Virginia Bluebells. This year's assortment was especially unique and beautiful and I have enjoyed them so much. I'm ordering more right now.

                                  What is a "Quality Bulb," and Why Does Bulb Quality Matter?

                                  Flower bulbs come in a wide variety of sizes. It is important to get the largest, best quality bulbs you can find. Larger bulbs help to ensure success, producing larger and stronger plants with more flowers.

                                  Several flower bulbs are part of the onion family, and because of this I like to use Onions as a representation of how important bulb size is. Which of the onions on your shelf go bad first? The smallest ones! Larger onions are more resilient, taking longer to dry out/rot and can withstand swings in temperature better. Flower bulbs are the same. Larger bulbs will withstand disease, draught, large amounts of moisture, and colder temperatures significantly better than the smaller ones.

                                  Here at American Meadows we are committed to providing you with the highest quality bulbs. This means we do everything we can to source the largest bulbs possible. Below is a comparison of bulbs purchased from three different retail stores:

                                  Each of the glass tubes contains 20 Dutch Master Daffodils. Starting from the left, the first tube is what is sold here at American Meadows, the middle tube was purchased at a local “Home Supply” box store, and the third is another online retailer. The difference is easily noticeable.

                                  The next picture is the same comparison, but with Tulip Bulbs:

                                  Again, our bulbs are quite a bit larger than other retailers.

                                  Other things to be aware of when it comes to bulb quality is making sure they are firm and without signs of external damage or cracking. Do your best to avoid bulbs that are already growing and have shoots or freshly grown roots. This is difficult when purchasing online, but if you are ordering through a reputable company, they should be checking for these things regularly.

                                  Next time you are looking to buy bulbs, think about how much time you put into planning and planting your garden and then anxiously waiting for your flowers to grow and bloom. Don’t be disappointed after all that effort by planting sub-par bulbs. Buy the largest, firmest, disease free bulbs you can afford, and you will have the best possible results.
