Hi, this is Yolanda Vanveen and in this segment I'm going to talk about how to grow daffodil bulbs in containers. Now daffodils can grow anywhere. They can grow right in your lawn, they can grow in a garden bed, they can be forced indoors or you can put them right into containers. The trick to planting bulbs in containers is to make sure that you put more than one in a container and I have found three is always a good number and when you're planting them you want to have them covered up about three inches deep or twice the size of the bulb deep but my rule of thumb about three inches deep is good enough and so you want to put them in a triangle into your container, so you want to set them right in a triangle and then you just want to cover that with soil so that they're at least two or three inches deep. Now you just leave it in that container year round and it will come up and grow. Now I have found too when you have daffodils in a container, try to keep that container dry in the Winter time so throw it under the patio or under the eaves or in the garage to be safe because if that container gets solid wet and turns into an ice cube sometimes you can lose the bulbs. So you want to leave them on the dry side, put them outside and in January or February they'll come right up and bloom and don't forget to put some lilies or Calla lilies or things that bloom in the Summer time in the same container so that you can enjoy the color for many months.
