Daffodils and crocus bulbs can be purchased now for fall planting. Many companies give a discount if bulbs are bought in the spring. Daffodils are easy to plant and require only full sun and good drainage to create colorful displays next spring. Planting bulbs behind daylillies or other spring/early summer perennials will hide the daffodil foliage when it begins to die back. The old foliage should be left until it is completely brown. This feeds the bulb for the next year. Daffodils have an amazing variety of colors, flower types, heights and bloom times. They are also deer resistant which is a must for many gardeners. As a photographer I find they make amazing  still life subjects and fill the garden with beauty.
