We obtain a formula for the Heegaard Floer homology (hat theory) of the three-manifold Y(K1,K2) obtained by splicing the complements of the knots KiYi, i=1,2, in terms of the knot Floer homology of K1 and K2. We also present a few applications. If hni denotes the rank of the Heegaard Floer group \ov\HFKT for the knot obtained by n-surgery over Ki we show that the rank of \ov\HFT(Y(K1,K2)) is bounded below by

We also show that if splicing the complement of a knot KY with the trefoil complements gives a homology sphere L-space then K is trivial and Y is a homology sphere L-space.
