After flowering, clip the wilted flower from the stem and then let the foliage dry completely while maintaining water level.
When the foliage has completed to dry out, you might see new little bulbs beginning to form, this is perfectly normal, please leave these.
Cut the foliage, but leave the roots. Now it time for the bulbs to establish themselves with proper rest.
Store the bulbs dry and as cool as possible. Refrigerate daffodil bulbs for six to eight weeks before planting in zones 8 through 10. The bulbs should not be stored together or near fruits. Fruit produces ethylene gas, which destroys the flower bud within the bulb. Place them in a paper bag away from ripening fruits.
Plant the daffodil bulbs in your garden at the appropriate time of the year using a good mix of soil and compost.
The planting space should receive plenty of sunlight in well-prepared soil with fast drainage, which is essential for the proper growth. Avoid planting where water collects, or in locations that are prone to late frosts.
For optimum growth, the growth season can be found according to your zone.
