I've never seen dafodills growing up out of turf. Clearly the
grass will compete with them for survival. Normally
dafodills are in a flower/shrub bed.

some people naturalize them in their lawns
and then after the leaves have died back they
mow it like a regular lawn again. you can
do this with any of the spring flowering bulbs
if they are hardy enough to survive competition
with the grass roots for moisture.


Actually, the bulbs prefer to be dry, so the grass consuming any excess water is
doing them a favor. Naturalized bulbs can be a very cool sideshow before the
grass gets rolling. By the time the bulb foilage yellows, it's about time to
mow. At the worst case, one can do the first few mowings around the bulb
foilage, to give it a bit of extra time to make food. Once mowed, the bulb
foilage will quickly disappear, and the grass will overtake the area. You'll
never know the bulbs are there, until next spring. =)

I think you must take soil test of your garden so you get some appropriate reasons. Thanks for sharing such wonderful information with us...Keep sharing.

We have daffodils growing in our lawn as well as crocusses, and it seems perfectly fine!
