Virtually indestructible bulbs with a sensational scent.
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 protect them from heat and soil erosion, as well as providing strength for the stem.
Space your Daffodils 5-10cm or apart. Planting them closer will give a more dramatic display. We like to plant ours three to a hole as this creates instant effects. When you use this method in garden beds, with smaller clumps more often, you get the joy of repetition. Another benefit is that when the foliage dies back it is more inconspicuous.
Once the flowering has finished you can remove the flower stem, or simply snap the finished flower off. This has two advantages; the first is this stops the plant focusing on seed production, so you can increase your bulbs, second it looks better!
Allow the foliage to remain until it has yellowed as this is when the bulbs are 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 appreciate Potash and slow release fertiliser brands which are low in nitrogen (so you get more flowers and less foliage). Don’t be too heavy handed, you won’t need much as they are not heavy feeders.
