I recently ordered Burpee's best mix daffodils and the "Auger" 3-inch bulb planter. How deep should the daffodil bulbs be planted?

Daffodil bulbs are best planted at a depth of 3-4". So your new tool should be perfect. Don't make the same mistake I did the first time I planted daffodils...make sure the tip of the bulb is pointing up...I planted about 30 upside down!!!
