Planting and Growing Narcissus Bulbs:
Plant the bulbs in the early autumn months, preferably in September or October, before the ground freezes. This gives the bulbs ample time to establish strong roots before the winter sets in.
Choose a location that receives full or partial sunlight (at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day) and has well-draining soil. Narcissus Thalia thrives in moist but not waterlogged conditions.
Prepare the soil by loosening it with a garden fork or tiller. Remove any weeds, rocks, or debris that may obstruct the bulb's growth. Consider adding organic matter like compost or well-rotted manure to enhance soil fertility.
Dig holes that are approximately 6-8 inches (15-20 cm) deep. Place the bulbs pointed end up, with a spacing of about 4-6 inches (10-15 cm) between each bulb. Ensure the bulbs are snugly nestled in the soil.
After planting, water the bulbs thoroughly to settle the soil and provide them with moisture. Thereafter, water moderately, keeping the soil moist but not overly saturated.
Once the foliage emerges, ensure the plants receive regular watering, especially during dry spells. Deadhead the spent flowers to encourage the bulb's energy to focus on growth rather than seed production. Allow the foliage to yellow and wither naturally before trimming it off.
