Step 1: Prepare the Hole

To plant a cluster of 3 to 5 daffodil bulbs (seen at left), loosen soil with a trowel and dig a hole about 7 inches deep and 6 to 8 inches wide. (For tulips, dig down about 5 inches, and for tiny crocus bulbs, about 2 inches.)

How deep to dig?
Follow this formula: Height of bulb in inches x 2.5= depth of hole
