Video: Planting daffodil bulbs

A short video montage of some work I did in the garden today. I purchased a bag of 75 daffodil bulbs to expand my existing plantings a week or so ago. Here in Southern California, our bulbs start to sprout as soon as the first substantial rains appear, so I wanted to make sure and get these in the ground soon. We had a storm pass through last week, but it didn’t bring much actual moisture. That said, it is a sign that the Winter rains are about to arrive.

Today I planted about 25 of the 75 bulbs in some areas where I am pretty sure there are no daffodils already. While my existing bulbs do seem to naturalize and spread, I try to plant a few more every year to create a daffodil “tide” when they all bloom at once. We get probably a month of bloom from the daffodils, which are proceeded by paperwhites, which are usually first and then snowbells and finally, the daffodils
