A cheerful selection of midsized daffodils that have gorgeous perfume, multiple flower heads and commendably strong growth.
Also known as Jonquils or Jonquil type or tazetta type daffodils, cluster daffodils. Whatever you want to call them, Scented Daffodils are some of the toughest around. The blooms cluster together on branched stems, forming an impressive display. The blooms have a strong, sweet fragrance that carries beautifully throughout the garden or home. They make a top choice for beginners and for warmer climates.
Scented Daffodils are easy and 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. This depth will help to 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, closer for a more dramatic display. In the garden, we like to plant ours three to a hole to create instant effects.
Once the flowering has finished you can remove the flower stem (this stops the plant focusing on seed production, so it will increase the vigour of your bulb). Allow the foliage to remain until it has yellowed, this is the time when the Daffodil foliage is gathering energy and nutrients for next year’s blooms. Keep the plants relatively moist during this time, and add a little general purpose fertiliser. Daffodils like Potash and slow release fertiliser brands which are low in nitrogen (this means more flowers and less foliage), and you won’t need much as they are not heavy feeders.
