Every season we walk the paddocks, checking on our growing bulbs. As we go we notice some stand our more than others, this is our season’s selection. Amid a field of strong contenders, we have chosen these select daffodils. Not just pretty faces, the Tesselaar’s Top Six Daffodils are notable for their great substance and incredible staying power.
Great in the garden, these Garden Daffodils are easy to grow and can be left in the ground to naturalise. We have trialled and tested these varieties to ensure they are good and hardy, and we are confident of their quality. They can be relied upon to produce masses of reliable spring colour for years to come.
Don’t let the name throw you off, Garden Daffodils can also be grown in containers!
Daffodils are easy, they like the simple things in life; plenty of sun and a well drained soil.
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.
