As with many other spring blooming bulbs, daffodils can be forced. Plant them in containers (they may be layered in the pot if separated by about an inch of soil). water lightly, and chill (a spare refrigerator or unheated garage may work) for about ten weeks or until you see roots coming out the bottom drainage hole of the pot and shoots emerging from the soil. Then bring them out into a bright but cool location (about 60 degrees) until they bloom. They may also be planted in the garden.
