A creamy white perianth with pointed and well separated petals. A large, frilled and flared, primrose yellow trumpet is the icing on the cake. Blooms early to mid season a whopping 10cm across. A robust choice.

Daffodils are suitable for garden and container plantings.

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.
