Q.Where to Plant Daffodils

Anonymous added on April 13, 2011 | Answered

I have a medium sized oak tree in my front yard. I have a circle of hostas planted around it. I would like to plant a few daffodil bulbs between the hostas so I can have some color there next spring. I’m worried that they won’t get enough sunlight. What do you think?

Actually, daffodils do really well in tree shaded areas. Typically, a tree shaded area gets significantly more sun in the spring than it does in summer and fall because the branches have not leafed out. There should be more than enough sun in spring for the daffodils to live.
