Botanical grouping: Narcissus
Family: Amaryllidaceae
Plant/bulb type: True bulbs
Planting time: Late Summer to Autumn
Height: Depth & spacing:
  • Dwarf: 5cm deep & apart
  • Others: 12-15cm apart. 15cm deep

Aspect: Full sun to half shade.
Soil: Well drained. Generally not fussy.
Watering: Start watering when growth appears and keep soil slightly moist until foliage dies off after flowering. It is ideal to keep bulbs relatively dry whilst dormant.
Fertilising: Top dress with a complete fertiliser each Autumn. Eg: Blood & Bone. For better performance, top dress annually again after flowering.
Flowering time: From late Winter until mid Spring (depending on the variety).
After flowering care: The bulbs can either be dug and stored or left to naturalise in the ground. The bulbs will need lifting and dividing (because they multiply & overcrowd themselves) every 3-5 years. Planting slightly deeper and further apart will delay the need to lift.
Climates: Subtropical to col.
