Daffodils like...and need...to be planted deeply so you could plant under other plants. However, I personally dont like this. You would not plant an evergreen on top, for example, as it would be spoiled by bulbs' foliage.
I would plant bulbs to the side of other things. Or vice versa, plants to the side of bulbs. Couple of reasons for this.....they don't spoil the neighbouring plant and you can easily lift amd divide bulbs in the future as they multiply. And they surely will....in a couple of years your stocks will increase dramatically amd you will have bulbs, ESP daffs, to spread around your garden.
It's a personal viewpoint....it's not critical really and others will have different ideas.
