Good morning, I need to remove some daffodil bulbs from a pot and want to put them in the ground.
I would appreciate  advice on how to do this. Thanks

    Dig a hole and put them in.  :)

    Are the daffs still in flower?

    haha thanks
    They have just finished flowering and the leaves are dying down ..

    Remove the flower heads, so they use the energy for next year's flowers, not seeds, but leave the foliage to die down naturally, to feed the bulb :)

    You can give them a feed while they die back too. It gives them a boost. 
    It wouldn't matter if they were still in flower anyway - you can still plant them out no problem. I still have loads in flower and some varieties still to flower.  :)
