An all time favourite. The best trumpet daffodil for cool climates. Yellow never looked so good! Flowers early season.
This flower has been loved for generations. 'King Alfred' is the most popular Daffodil in the world, and for good reason. They are hardy and adaptable to a variety of conditions. The golden flowers are large and long lasting.
Daffodils are easy, they like the simple things in life; plenty of sun and a well drained soil. It is this sunny disposition that is appealing to gardeners worldwide. We choose the best varieties for our Australian conditions so you are guaranteed success.
Plant daffodil bulbs three times as deep as the bulb is high with the pointy end up. The depth will protect them from heat and soil erosion as well as providing strength for the stem. Space your daffodils 10-20cm apart, more if you are leaving the bulbs in to naturalise.
Once the flowering has finished you can remove the flower stem. Allow the foliage to remain until it has yellowed. The daffodil bulbs use the foliage to gather energy and nutrients at this time for next year’s blooms. Keep the plants relatively moist during this time, and add a little high potash fertiliser. Daffodils like Potash and slow release fertiliser brands which are low in nitrogen (this means more flowers and less foliage). They are not heavy feeders.
Daffodils are suitable for garden and container plantings. Plant as many as space permits!
