Answer: For best springtime bloom, bulbs should remain in the ground and foliage should be allowed to die back on its own. The leaves transport energy to the bulbs for storage, which is used to produce the following year's flower display. Daffodils can be planted now rather than stored and planted in the fall. Get them into the ground as soon as possible and leave the foliage attached to the bulbs. With any luck at all they'll bloom next spring. If they don't, they certainly will the following year - if you leave the foliage until it withers away on its own. Best of luck with your daffodils!
